Learning and education in the context of sustainability and global change are the focus of my work. Specifically, my research focuses on understanding the factors and conditions that influence how teams produce integrated, action-oriented socioecological knowledge in a rapidly changing world. I currently teach undergraduate and graduate courses in assessment and evaluation in education, problem-based learning, critical sustainability, and Latin American studies. Over the last 10 years, I have participated in several collaborative research projects with multiple aims, including building researchers’ and organizations’ capacity for collaboration and engaging networks that include knowledge keepers, local community members and academics in co-designing and co-producing solutions-oriented knowledge; and to aid teams to develop networks of mutual learning.
