Professor of Geography, University of New Mexico

I am a human–environment geographer with a broad range of interests. In my research, I study how humans interact with plants, both intentionally and unintentionally. I have examined plant-people interactions from multiple perspectives, including ecology, cultural studies, history, and ethnobotany. My spatial focus is on western Africa and the African Atlantic Diaspora.
