I am interested in how climate change is affecting the world's political geography. Specifically, I research the Arctic and the involvement of traditionally non-Arctic actors, such as East Asian countries, in the region. Commodity chains, resource frontiers, infrastructure, and transportation networks are also of great interest to me, as is designing maps and infographics.
For nearly five years, I have run the Foreign Policy Association's Arctic Blog. I strive to make academic research accessible and interesting to the general public through my blog and other freelance writing.

These are interesting times to be in the social sciences. My primary research interest is analyzing the spatial organization and interaction of economic activities in capitalist societies. As part of this research umbrella, I am interested in examining how capital and labor flow patterns impact regional development in contemporary China. Capital and labor buildup in core regions, follow by incremental development in peripheral areas has been one of the most significant features of economic geography over the last two centuries-- notably 19th-Century England and 20th-Century U.S. I am interested in discovering to what extent is China's economic path following that of Western countries by studying the geographic and temporal patterns of capital and labor flow between the coastal provinces and the interior regions.

This research is part of a major project that aims at addressing a major issue in dryland ecology: how belowground plant processes in water-limited ecosystems control belowground organic carbon dynamics under different climate conditions. To address this central issues, this project will define the distribution and dynamics of belowground biomass and soil organic carbon through extensive field data collection and modeling at a suite of sites across a regional climate gradient in the Kalahari. The Kalahari is one of the only places on Earth where this type of natural experiment can be conducted without confounding effects of soil variability.

Dissertation: "Boondoggle, or Benefit? The Commodification of Degraded Landscapes in Indonesia in an Age of Climate Change"
Through a political-ecological history of the "Mega Rice Project" in Central Kalimantan, Indonesia, my doctoral dissertation looks at the relationship between degraded tropical landscapes, socio-ecological disasters, and environmental commodification. I investigate how classifying an inhabited tropical ecosystem as degraded has invited development schemes in Kalimantan historically. I also look at how scientific knowledge, including contemporary climate science, has influenced rehabilitation plans in the project site and the scales of perceived consequences of the disaster. Finally, I look at how climate change policy has affected food security discourses in Indonesia.

Currently my primary research interests are at the nexus between political, cultural, and urban geography. How do the communities created within newly developed urban contexts affect on the one hand relational group politics, and on the other hand, the formation of the urban landscape. The city must be regarded not only as an aggregate macro-economic entity that shapes lives through capital accumulation, but as an experienced and malleable socio-cultural environment with real political and economic effects. I am also interested in the relationship between universal phenomenology and in-context representation.
My Ph.D. research examines Chinese development policy and its repercussions in the Tibetan and Muslim regions of China's western Qinghai Province. China is integrating these regions economically and culturally, by way of infrastructure, market, and education adjustments. Through a study of ethnic neighborhoods in the largest city on the Tibetan plateau, Xining, I explore how these groups are adapting and adapting to the city, and how their ethnic identities, neighborhood landscapes, and economic opportunities are influencing their political identifications vis-Ã -vis other ethnic groups and state development policies. This research has wider implications for the emerging worldwide phenomenon of frontier urbanism: the urbanization of ethnically diverse and formerly remote regions of the world. My research suggests the critical importance alternative territorialities and translocal connections have in the construction and maintenance of frontier cities.
My Master's Thesis looked at the role of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Torch Relay in performing the Chinese geo-body. Mainstream Chinese media reactions and popular nationalist support reflected the discourse of "national humiliation," which portrays China as a continuous victim of external attack. Turning to work on satirical humor, I suggest that despite this discourse's prominence, the ossified presentation of this discourse was resulted in many Chinese citizens ignoring or politically reacting against the discursive status quo of both foreign and Chinese official media interpretations.

I study ethnic conflict. To do that, I focused on "collective memory," or how groups remember the past in order to use it in the present. Specifically, my MA thesis centered on the case of sectarian conflict in Lebanon, but my interests have expanded within the Middle East (Cyprus, Anatolia, Syria) and into other regions (Quebec, Belgium, the United States).
My more recent research addresses the problems and profits of engaging with the concept of the "weak" or "failed" state in political research. How do people experience political order in "weak states?" How do weak states fit into the international geopolitical order? How do we talk about politics in a weak state, to begin with? What kinds of practices of mobilization might we see for new identities and loyalties? Where does political violence fit into all this? These are the sorts of questions that interest me at the moment.

My master's thesis focused on Orhan Pamuk's memoir Istanbul: Memories and the City. I was particularly interested in the ways in which Pamuk claims a rooted and local identity; at the same time, I argued that one of Pamuk's central projects in his memoir was to place himself in Istanbul without endorsing a nationalist project.
My doctoral research will be located in the Istanbul neighborhood of Eyup and study some of the ways in which the neighborhood - or particular sites within the neighborhood - have come to be understood as especially Islamic.

I am interested on social processes in the context of a civil war. Through an ethnography of indigenous peoples' communities under a "permanent war" - communities that historically have been engaged in wars of self-determination and are currently engaged in a civil war, I hope to understand the nuances of everyday violence, war as norm/peacetime as an exception, wartime legacies, and how war shapes affect.
My Masters Thesis explored the historical basis of the elimination of indigenous peoples in the Philippines post-9/11. Engaging David P. Barrow's handwritten ethnographic field notes, official letters and personal correspondences between 1900 and 1909 regarding the indigenous peoples in the Philippines, I explored the historical roots of identity construction of indigenous peoples as the violent Other. I also explored the connections of the process of Othering to state legibility, territoriality and everyday violence, and how these dynamics shape the institutional violence toward indigenous peoples as manifested under the counter-terrorist strategy of the Philippine state post-9/11, which identified indigenous peoples as its main target.

I am interested in using active remote sensing to study forest aboveground carbon storage (biomass), distribution, diversity, and forest structure. My MA research utilized radar data to estimate aboveground forest biomass (AGB) in the state of Maine. The aim was to develop algorithms that correlate radar backscatter values with AGB, that can then be extrapolated over the state. My current research towards my Ph.D. concerns an altitudinal gradient in Costa Rica's Braulio Carrillo National Park. I am assessing drivers of tree diversity and forest structure along this gradient using lidar and radar data. I am assessing forest structure and seeing the feasibility of relating remotely sensed structural information to alpha diversity in neotropical montane rainforests. In doing so, it will be possible to effectively map diversity and carbon sequestration across the region with the available remote sensing data.
