About me

I received my PhD in Earth, Environment, Society at Portland State University in 2020, my Master’s in Philosophy, Aesthetics, and Critical Thought at the European Graduate School in 2016, and my Bachelor’s in International Studies at Trinity College (Hartford, CT). I edited an anthology on political ecology called Grabbing Back: Essays Against the Global Land Grab (2014), and wrote a book on the intellectual history of the transnational far right called Against the Fascist Creep (2017). My articles on the far right have appeared in peer-reviewed journals such as the Oregon Historical Quarterly and Boundary 2 Online, while my works on political ecology have been published in the Hydrological Sciences Journal and the Annals of the American Association of Geographers Review of Books. I have appeared as an expert on local NBC, NPR, and FOX News affiliates, as well as BBC World Service, CBC, and ABC News. Since 2016, I have taught classes at Portland State University’s Geography Department on globalization, water, food, sustainability, and climate change.
