Research and Background

My research is on the politics, history and policy of sustainable river management. Recent and current research projects focus on (1) river floods in New England, and (2) the relationship between rivers, hydropower, and a changing electrical grid/system. The key overlaps with transportation are in thinking about improving road-stream crossings for community resilience and ecological improvement; and in examining how changing transportation systems, e.g. an increase in electric vehicles, may impact the regional electrical grid/system and thereby the environments and communities on which it depends. In addition, I serve on Amherst's Transportation Advisory Committee and advocate for bicycle, pedestrian and public transportation infrastructure and education. Finally, I am interested in the intersection between equity in public schools, the geography of a community's neighborhoods, businesses and schools, and families' access to non-car transportation.
