Professional Bio

Although initially trained as a sociologist and demographer, my research is characterized by diverse collaborations across disciplines. This interdisciplinary research on how human and natural systems affect each other spans the social and natural sciences. My research is also international in scope with data collections or field work in the United States, Mexico, Mozambique, China, and Nepal.

To support my research, I use tools to develop apps and conduct statistical analysis. For app development, I use C#, Java, and Xamarin to create mobile apps on Windows, Android and iOS that collect data for my projects. For statistical analysis, I use R and SAS to test hypotheses and visualize data.
