Land change science, remote sensing, GIS, and the effects of international economic policy and trade on land cover change.
My present research examines the effects of changing trade policies between the U.S. and Mexico in the Tijuana-San Diego region over the past 40 years, and the implications for present and future changes in international trade policy. I utilize remotely sensed imagery and GIS to map land cover change and seek correlations with changing economic or social factors. I am also interested livelihood systems, climate change adaptation, renewable energy technologies, and the effects of protected areas on ecological health.
In my free time I like to rock climb, trail run, or wander aimlessly in the mountains.
