Research associate, Brown University

I am a historical geographer investigating deciduous- and boreal forest landscape changes in response to colonialism. For my Ph.D., I used archaeological-, historical-, and pollen-based information, recreating a vegetation history of New England linked to changes from Native Abenaki to settler landuse. My current research project focuses on vegetation histories of areas in Northeast Asia that were deforested under Japanese, colonial rule in the early 20th century. Ethnobotany, Landscape Ecology, Landuse History, and Animal History are some of my research interests.
