I am studying as a political ecologist with concentrations in feminist science and technology studies and cultural and ethnic studies. I aim to think critically about the complex relationships between natural resource industry and sciences, race and identity, and the politics of representation. Specifically, I am working on research about the construction and contestation of "green environments" in Oregon. I strive to make connections between political economic analysis, scientific discourse, and the work of cultural institutions to open possibilities for equitable engagements with issues of land control. Currently I am developing a project that examines representations of “Nature” in museums, national parks, and interpretive centers in the Pacific Northwest and Western U.S. I aim to understand how these curated spaces provide opportunities for resilient social and ecological communities in the face of climate change, environmental injustice, and debates surrounding land control and what counts as a “Renewable resource” in the U.S. Prior to pursuing my doctoral degree, I worked with non-profits in Oregon, Southern California, and Argentina on issues at the crux of environmental justice, education, and outreach.
