My research focuses on human-environment interaction. I am particularly interested in marginal environments and how people perceive and adapt to variable conditions. Recent research includes southeast Kansas and mining landscapes, and west-central Alberta and agriculture. Past research has included perception of change in small towns and geographic education.
