My research interests lie at the nexus of population, environment, and development, mostly in Latin America. I am most interested in how migration and other population changes affect the environment, and in turn how development affects population change. My research in the Ecuadoran Andes has focused on land-use/cover change and the impact of transnational migration on landscapes and livelihoods. I followed Ecuadoran migrants to Spain (and metro New York) and conducted research in Ecuador’s Upper Amazon on demographic change and health among Shuar. I supervise graduate students on numerous environmental and migration related topics and I am very involved in Latin American Studies, Development Studies, and to a lesser extent, Environmental Studies.
