Scholarly Interests

My teaching and writing interests sit at the crossroads of environmental history, history of science, and environmental studies. I am drawn to the ways ideas of nature have mediated the human relationship with the environment over time. Most recently, I have explored this theme in the Arctic region, where scientific knowledge about people and the environment has been entangled with the colonization of the far north over the last 150 years. Because both environmental problem-solving and scholarship in the environmental humanities require collaboration, I am committed to interdisciplinarity and community engagement.
