Research Interests: 

I am broadly interested in applying mathematical modeling to environmental problems, how humans have historically used energy and interacted with the environment, and the history of scientific thought.  Three problems of especial interest include (1) modeling household level consumption and the potential for meaningful environmental harm reduction by changing individual consumption choices, (2) how the infectious disease of malaria has been affected by agriculture, land use, climate, and control measures throughout history, and (3) the potential to transition to a "sustainable" global society.

Additionally, I have a broad background in mathematical biology and modeling of cancer, especially as an ecologic process.
