Man with short hair and long beard wearing thick, black-rimmed glassesI am a professor and environmental activist working at Michigan State University (MSU). My website features general information and links about my research and projects, drafts of my published and forthcoming articles and short essays (including the Indigenous science letter), teaching and research materials on #NoDAPL and Indigenous climate justice, and places where you can follow my updates.

My work focuses on the problems and possibilities Indigenous peoples face regarding climate change, environmental justice, and food sovereignty.

I participate in some great and unique programs at MSU that I encourage you to check out, including Philosophy, Community Sustainability, American Indian & Indigenous Studies, Environmental Science & Policy, Environmental Philosophy & Ethics and the Geocognition Research Lab.
