My research interests focus broadly on the blurring of environmental education research-practice, philosophical theory, and life experiences. More specifically, I am interested in animism and alternative ontologies; the philosophy of affect in relation to environmental degradation and climate change; immanent ethics and immanent ontology in all areas of education; and creative practices of inquiry for affective encounters, including writing, photography, songwriting, and filmmaking. I am particularly interested in the potential of post-autoethnographic or sympoethnographic approaches for taking up these problems, as well as as a conduit for practitioner-world inquiry in the anthropocene more generally. 

I practice these approaches through experiences with learners in the outdoors and my research has particular implications for the fields of outdoor education, outdoor learning, environmental arts and humanities, and creative-relational research methods.
