I AM ON RESEARCH LEAVE FOR 2019-2020.
At Rutgers my teaching portfolio focuses on global environmental issues and policy. At the undergraduate level, I regularly teach classes for the Environmental Policy, Institutions and Behavior (EPIB) major in Climate Change Policy and Globalization, Environment, and Development. I also occasionally teach the undergraduate capstone class and fill in for other courses. I previously taught EPIB 315 International Environmental Policy (syllabus: FallIntlEnvPolicySyllabus).
I regularly teach a graduate course HDEC 501 Nature Society Theory in the fall which counts as a core class in the graduate certificate for Human Dimensions of Environmental Change (HDEC501syllabusSpring16). I have also taught HDEC 502 Political Ecology of Climate Change (FinalGradClimateSyllabus). These courses are open to any graduate student at Rutgers, or any graduate student in a university belonging to the Inter-University Doctoral Consortium (Columbia University, Princeton University, CUNY Graduate Center, Fordham University, Stony Brook University, New School University, New York University).
If you are interested in working with me as a graduate student, please let me know. You would need to apply to the Ph.D. or masters’ programs in one of the four graduate departments with which I am affiliated: the Department of Geography, the Department of Anthropology, the Department of Women’s & Gender Studies, or the Bloustein School of Public Policy.
