I am an Assistant Professor of Environmental Planning and Policy in the Department of Planning, Policy and Design at the University of California, Irvine, and an interdisciplinary scholar who uses political, social, and technical perspectives to evaluate the sustainability of environmental planning and decision-making practices. I have expertise in collaborative environmental planning and management, water resources management, and mixed-methods approaches to research and evaluation.

I earned my PhD through the Emmett Interdisciplinary Program in Environment & Resources at Stanford University, and spent a year as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Bill Lane Center for the American West at Stanford University. My professional life has spanned the public and non-profit sectors, including work with the US Department of the Interior (Region IX), the World Bank, and Amigos Bravos, a grassroots river-protection nonprofit in New Mexico.
