Research and Teaching Interests：
My research lies at the intersection of ecology, capitalism, and state. It explores how interactions on multiple scales between human and non-human actors embedded in particular institutional and ecological settings produce social and ecological inequality with a focus on sustainability. My research interests include Agrarian and Environmental Change, Political Economy of Development, East and Southeast Asia, and theories of Hegemony and Resistance. I am committed to working with students on these and other research topics of their interests.
