Research interests: Interactions between animals and human society in history, Role of history in ecological restoration
My main research focus with the SBC LTER is on the role of history in ecological restoration in the coastal zone. To this end I have been working with Jenny Dugan on the ecological history of the Coal Oil Point area on the west campus of UCSB. My particular interest is in exploiting a variety of historical materials (e.g., maps, photos, print and manuscript documents) to find out about past and current human impacts and hopefully inform discussions of restoration and resilience. I’m also interested in policies concerning endangered species.
