I teach sociology at Ursinus College, a small liberal arts college in the Philly suburbs, where I’m also affiliated with the environmental studies department. I teach Animals & Society, Environmental Justice, and a number of other courses. My research is situated at the intersection of two interdisciplinary fields: animal studies and the environmental humanities. Before I went to graduate school I practiced environmental law.

Moving through a More-than-Human World

I’m at the early stages of a new research project on roadkill. See “Consider the Vulture” for some preliminary thoughts on this topic.
