I am an Associate Professor at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where I teach in the Department of Anthropology. I have a great love of the natural world; my hobbies are backpacking, mountain biking, hiking, and birdwatching. My personal and professional interest in environmental issues makes me committed to trying to make the world a more livable place for everyone.
