Research Interests: 
Common-pool resource management; ethnoecology; social networks; fungi; trust, cooperation, and exchange; Southwest China


My research focuses on resource management and use in forest systems, particularly looking at trust and cooperation among Yi mushroom harvesters in Yunnan Province, China. I am broadly interested in common-pool resource management, social networks, processes of NTFP commodification, social aspects of economic practice, and the creation and transmission of ethnoecological knowledge.
