RESEARCH

 

My work is highly interdisciplinary, drawing on environmental philosophy, ethnoecology, and urban ecology. Issues that are explored in my classes include food ethics, linguistic and cultural diversity, ecological knowledge, environmental ethics, plural epistemologies, animal ethics, philosophy of technology, energy and urban sustainability. Recent projects that I have been developing focus specifically on developing ecological and ethical literacy within the United States, in particular through education and policy reform. This is part of my larger theoretical critique which explores the relationship between our values and ecological knowledge and institutions and infrastructure that frames our daily lives.

I am a long-term collaborator with the Sub-Antarctic Biocultural Conservation Program located in Southern Chile, the Center for Environmental Philosophy based out of the University of North Texas and the international StarCore Nuclear.
