  • About

    My research focuses on the international aspects of Spanish environmental policy. I am particularly interested in interactions between different scales in the natural environment, from chemical and biological components, to local human activities to global political movements. My dissertation will focus on the connections between global, local, and biological factors in the history of the Albufera de Valencia region on the Spanish Mediterranean coast.
