Joining our lab at University of Arizona


Human Environment Geography

I am a human-environment geographer seeking to understand, map, and mitigate the causes and consequences of global environmental change with and for marginalized populations. I engage in a wide array of disciplines and methods from land system science, to hydrology, to the social sciences. PhD and Master's applicants should have either expertise in or a willingness to learn satellite image analysis, programming, and quantitative skills. Applicants must also demonstrate a commitment to building a more socially just world. We are devoted to building a diverse, inclusive, and anti-racist lab. Women and all expressions of gender identity, Black, Indigenous, and people of Color, LGBTQ people, and individuals with disabilities are especially encouraged to apply. Our lab is full for next year- I am currently not accepting PhD or masters students for Fall 2024, check back for Fall 2025. Also consider working with Jon Sullivan in our department who is actively recruiting (he's got funding for students!!) and also mixes remote sensing and social science in human environment geography- Id love to co-advise or be on your committee perhaps!


Arizona is beautiful, affordable, and diverse socially, geologically, culturally, and ecologically, with plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation, activism, and volunteering. Tucson is an affordable city, with a pioneering climate justice policy and a great local food scene!

Our lab sits on the 5th floor of this building (ENR2) modeled after a slot canyon with 360 mountain views!
