I am a geographer and economist interested in economic, land use, and demographic change in Brazil's Amazon and cerrado regions. I have been working in Brazil since 2007 on projects related to Brazil's agricultural boom. I am presently employed as a National Science Foundation postdoctoral research fellow at Brown University, where I am working on projects related to agricultural expansion, urban demographic change and development, and the resurgence of unregulated, wildcat "garimpagem" gold mining in the central Amazon. I am affiliated with both an Environmental Change Initiative and a Demography Center here at Brown. My research has been funded by the National Science Foundation, The North American Regional Science Association, the Inter-American Foundation, The Fulbright Program, the Mellon Foundation, the Social Science Research Council, and the National Geographic Society.
