Dr. Audrey Joslin
Department of Geography & Geospatial Sciences
Kansas State University
I am an Assistant Professor focused on human geography within the Department of Geography at Kansas State University. I study nature-society interactions, and particularly engage with the political, economic, and cultural dimensions of natural resource and environmental management. My research interests broadly include biodiversity conservation, ecosystem services, political ecology, rural-urban connections, and environmental governance.
I specialize in qualitative research methods and ethnography. I am also skilled with applications in GIS and enjoy mixed-methods research projects.
