Research Synopsis:

My research addresses the interaction between humans and coastal environments in the Great Lakes region. I will be examining conservation and development, environmental change and accessibility. I will be using a combination of methods including participatory mapping to evaluate how conservation and development have affected the social and ecological systems along the eastern shore of Lake Michigan.
