Area of expertise: Strategies and Tactics of Institutional and Grassroots Communication

Topics of interest: Environmental Advocacy


A commitment to advancing the study of environmental advocacy discourses and guides my research into strategies and tactics of institutional and grassroots communicators as they frame and galvanize environmental justice. As political representatives and legislators, popular media, advocacy groups, and activists participate in and resist systematic inequality in relation to the natural and built environment, communication practices reveal the intersections of social issues with the environment, and provide practical implications for improving humans’ relationship with nature.
