Academic Information
Research Summary: 
My multi-sited dissertation considers the affective, ethical, and political dimensions of climate change among climate scientists at the University of Washington, Pacific-Northwest climate justice activists, and a "frontline" community in Northwest Alaska. Fieldwork in Kivalina, Alaska is grounded in my participation in a transdisciplinary arts and research collective (Re-Locate: http://www.relocate-ak.org/) working with tribal and municipal leaders to support a community-led and culturally-specific village relocation process.
