I am a sociologist and demographer interested in questions surrounding environmental change and human health and well-being. In particular, I investigate how climate change affects food security and nutrition, the social processes underlying dam-induced displacement,   and relationships between environmental change and migration. I use quantitative and qualitative methods to examine these issues in low- and middle-income countries including Brazil and Ethiopia. I received a PhD in Sociology from Brown University in 2016 and am currently an Assistant Professor of Rural Sociology and Demography at Penn State University.
