Greetings! I am an interdisciplinary environmental studies scholar whose research examines how religious beliefs and cultural identity shape attitudes toward nature. Building on theory and methodologies from religious studies, my teaching and scholarship use the tools of the humanities and social sciences to interpret human-environmental interactions.

I am an Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at Texas A&M University, and an Associate Editor for the Journal for the Study of Religion, Nature and Culture.

My first book, The Gospel of Climate Skepticism: Why Evangelical Christians Oppose Action on Climate Change will be published October 22, 2019.
