Research Interests

My main research interest is how different understandings of time and temporal practices shape our ethical relations with the rest of nature.  I currently teach the Nature and Society graduate course as well as undergraduate courses in environmental ethics and epistemology and environmental thought.  Also a certified yoga instructor, I bring contemplative practices such sitting and walking meditation, silence, and contemplative reading into my approach to research and teaching.
