Research Interests

My research sits at the intersection of nature-society geography, science and technology studies, sustainability, and place studies. I am interested in delineating and understanding different environmental knowledges: how they work, where they come from, and what work they do in the world as they are communicated and used. In my current research I am drawing heavily from diverse economies theory, especially the political and ethical dimensions, to develop the idea of emplaced sustainability. I am also continuing to write about fungi, fungal conservation, and fungal conservationists, and the novel contributions they can make to biodiversity conservation discourses.
