My research focuses on natural hazard mitigation, particularly wildfire, in the context of the United States, including rural, suburban, urban, and exurban environments. I am particularly interested in comparisons of recovery and mitigation practices across these community types, social norms and cultures surrounding policy and mitigation, and behavioral change in the public regarding the environment post-natural hazard. I also focus on availability of resources via community institutions, federal and local aid for rebuilding and recovery, and relationships among communities and federal, state, and local policymakers and natural resource managers.
