Working in Transitioning Societies

Communities within low- and -middle income countries (LMICs) are and have experienced negative impacts from human-environmental systems through toxic site exposure, climate changes, and mismanaged (or lack thereof) environmental policies. The negative impacts of human-environmental systems on social, economic, environmental and culture in Eurasia creates new challenges for interdisciplinary and geospatial research agendas. The recent and ongoing impacts from human-environmental systems in Eurasia and in the Caucasus (rural and urban) display a complexity of data paucity, social, cultural, environmental, and political challenges. My research examines these complex dynamics from a geographic lens that is spatial and empirical.
