Research Interests

My research interest include hierarchical Bayesian models, spatial and spatio-temporal models, environmental and ecological applications, Bayesian methods, climate change and anthropogenic impacts on natural processes, and risk and reliability assessment.

I'm also interested in the intersection of science and human rights. I am an active member of the AAAS Science and Human Rights Coalition.

I'm affiliated with the Georgetown University's Center for the Environment and the newly established Environment Initiative. I also have a secondary appointment as an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Department of Forestry & Natural Resources of Clemson University, Clemson, SC.
