I am developing causal inference methods to understand religion's sustainability impacts, particularly in forest landscapes. I utilize a geospatial toolkit and mixed methods to characterize the landscape-level implications of social-ecological change. My research interest centers in South Asia, with my dissertation focusing on the Western Ghats. In my prior work, I developed Christian Education curricula for congregations in the DC metro area and North Carolina. From these settings, I created project-based learning for faith-based climate action, including partnerships with the Audubon Society and Interfaith Power and Light. I am broadly interested in the ways religious traditions offer interpretive and creative resources for sustainability transitions within multiple publics.
