Areas of Interest

I am interested in understanding climate change as a social and political problem. Currently, I'm studying knowledge production in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) through qualitative interviews with IPCC authors and ethnographic observations at Lead Author Meetings for Working Groups I and II in the Sixth Assessment Cycle. Past projects include qualitative studies of the near-real-time visualization of Arctic sea ice at the US National Snow and Ice Data Center, and how residents in Houston Texas experience their relation to home after being flooded in Hurricane.
