My research is based at the Udall Center for Studies in Public Policy. I normally supervise Masters and PhD students in the School of Geography & Development.
I am able to co-chair student committees in Latin American Studies.
Ongoing research and stakeholder engagement -- in and outside the academy -- led to invitations for me to be Univ. Arizona affiliate faculty in:
- Arid Lands Resource Sciences (I can chair student committees)
And the following, where I can co-chair student committees:
- Hydrology & Water Resources
- Soil, Water & Environmental Science
- Watershed Management (School of Natural Resources & Environment)
