My primary research interest is the application of social science data, concepts, and methods to natural resource and environmental planning and decisionmaking. I do this primarily through the study of visitor behavior and recreation management practices and the evaluation of agency land management planning, public involvement, social assessments, policies, and practices.

My research interests center around four broad topics: 1) Understanding relationships between salmon and their habitats; 2) Characterizing how aquatic habitats are distributed throughout a stream network and across a landscape and what influences this distribution; 3) Evaluating and developing spatial data for broad-scale research and conservation of stream ecosystems; and 4) Advancing knowledge about interactions among in-channel conditions, watershed processes, and land management to better design and evaluate policy options.
