About Me

I am an Assistant Professor in the Greenlee School of Journalism and Communication at Iowa State University. 

Research Areas: Environmental, risk, and science communication, human dimensions of wildlife, public engagement and citizen science

My research explores the contextual and psychological drivers of socio-political conflict over environmental policy and management, the barriers to effective science and environmental communication, and how technology can be used to build consensus, promote effective communication, and inspire sustainable behavior.
