Relationship Between Economics And The Natural World Focusing On Critiques Of Conservation And Development Application Of Social Theory To The Environmental Crisis Cultural Studies
I am a graduate of the Masters and the PhD programs in FES. My primary area of interest is the conservation of the natural world. Most of my work involves the analysis of current conservation strategies, as represented in resource management, sustainability, and Radical Environmentalism. My primary academic focus is community-based conservation and critiques of globalization. I teach courses in Environmental Thought, Biological Conservation and Environment and Development.
Prior to returning to university, I spent twelve years as a commercial fisherman in Nova Scotia. I have been active in forging links between the fisheries and environmental concerns for the last five years.
