I am a tenure track Assistant Professor in Justice, Community and Leadership at Saint Mary's College of California in the Bay Area. My research and teaching interests straddle the interconnected spheres of sustainability and social justice, applying participatory and ethnographic methodologies. I received my PhD from the Department of Environmental Science Policy and Management at the University of California Berkeley (2015). I am on the executive board of the Global Research Forum on Sustainable Consumption and Production, a world-wide network of researchers and practitioners working on sustainability transitions. Previously, I worked as a program officer at the Ashoka Trust for Research in Ecology and the Environment, India, coordinating multiple research projects and organizing environmental education programs.
