Research Overview

I'm a PhD in Creative Writing. My main research area is the literary essay. My reseach is a book of essays that explore the notion of abundance in the natural world. Through field research in a number of countries - from Romanian forests to the urban spaces of the Netherlands or the marine habitats of Maine, USA, I encounter people working to support biodiversity or to bring back species from the edge of extinction. I also examine some of the complexities that exist in human responses to landscapes and species.
