President, US Society for Ecological Economics

The USSEE is one of many regional professional organizations within the umbrella society of the International Society for Ecological Economics (ISEE). The common goal of ecological economists is to improve theoretical models and practical solutions to achieving long term economic and social well-being without undermining the absorptive, regenerative and resource capacity of the natural environment. USSEE members are academics and practitioners engaged in research, policy, community projects and various other activities and collaborations to advance the interdisciplinary field of ecological economics. The society is intentional about advancing dialogue across different disciplines, backgrounds and professional contexts to address pressing social and ecological problems. The society is particularly interested in advancing work that seeks to identify concrete solutions and actions to bring about a more just and sustainable future.

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.
