I am a socio-cultural anthropologist researching the intersections of humans, environments, and wildfire in California. I am particularly interested in conceptualizing ideologies as environmental forces to better understand unprecedented socio-environmental shifts. My imminent doctoral research will use multi-sited, multi-scalar methods to demonstrate how wildfire knowledge is created, predictions formed, and uncertainties managed in contexts of increasing environmental instability. In the past, I conducted graduate research at the Universities of Cambridge and Durham, where I explored the role of fire in contemporary Maya agroforestry systems. I currently also work as a wildland firefighter for the U.S. Forest Service.
