I joined the Department of Environmental Studies and Sciences in 2014 after serving on the faculties of the American University at Cairo (Egypt) and Northeast Louisiana University. I have also worked professionally as a writer, a civil mediator, and (most recently) a senior research editor at the Center for Improving Student Learning in Mathematics and Science.
I currently have three long-term writing projects on my desk. The first emerges from 3 years of data collection during and after an urban water crisis in a mid-sized midwest town. I have presented pieces of this material and plan to complete a nonfiction book on public risk in urban water policy. The second project is a novel emerging from my own experiences in working with a city alder on water policy and as a private citizen in the urban South. The third project is a short story collection emerging from my interests in the environment and social justice.
Environmental Communication Project:
Alluvian. In fall 2015, my research students and I created a prototype undergraduate environmental issues online journal, Alluvian. The first issue was published online on October 20, 2016. (Please "like" our Facebook page: alluvianjournal and follow us on Twitter.) As the journal grows, I will be offering internships as well as continuing to supervise research students interested in online communication of environmental issues.
