Personal Statement
My research interests lie at the cross section of ecological and human dimensions, particularly the complex social, political, and economic factors that play into watershed protection and the role of community participation in ecological restoration and environmental policy. I am interested in participatory planning efforts as a potential method of ecological/watershed restoration and community development. My thesis research about Onondaga Lake investigates local lake restoration programs to determine if people's participation and inclusion in restoration initiatives is related to their sense of place, including behavioral, social, cognitive and affective connections to the lake.
