I am interested in research which deals with how people interact with, relate to and utilize marine resources. I am also interested in cultural perceptions of "nature" and "place", North American Indigenous and Native American Studies, and environmental and marine policy. Other areas of interest include environmental education, how ecological concepts and literacy is conveyed to the public, tourism and recreational studies, and ecotourism.
