I am a political scientist with research in political geography, local politics, and the politics of housing and transportation. My latest work examines how people understand the economic effects of housing construction in their neighborhoods and metropolitan areas.
I look at how plants, water, climate, and people interact - from the scale of a tree to watersheds. I do this by combining multiple sources of data with earth system models - that my group designs and applies. Eco-hydrology meets Eco-Informatics.
