I am an Assistant Professor of Sociology and Social Justice Studies in the Department of Sociology and Gerontology at Miami University. My research interests include environmental sociology, social theory, political economy, animal studies, and the sociology of technology. Current research projects concern the potential effectiveness of proposed solutions to environmental problems; the social dimensions and environmental impacts of technology; and the renewal of classical and mid-twentieth century sociological theory.  

I have published over 20 articles featured in Journal of Cleaner Production, Journal of Rural Studies, Organization & Environment, and other journals, as well as received paper awards from the Agriculture, Food, and Human Values Society and the American Sociological Association.
