Research Interests

Trained as a philosopher and economist, I am a sustainability scholar whose interdisciplinary research focuses on the relation between sustainability and human well-being. In general, I approach this topic as a philosophically informed social scientist. As the only humanities faculty member with a tenure home at the School of Sustainability, my unique role is to help bridge the gap between sustainability science and the humanities. To perform this role, my research consists of an independent research agenda on sustainability and well-being, and I also have several on-going collaborative research projects on cognate topics, such as health & well-being, energy & well-being, food & well-being, environmental philosophy, and the nature of interdisciplinary science during the Anthropocene. My collaborators, at ASU and beyond, come from a wide range of disciplines, including ecology, engineering, mathematics, environmental history, history and philosophy of science, and environmental philosophy.
