Biography

I’m an Assistant Professor of Sociology at Florida State University and a faculty affiliate in the Center for Demography and Population Health. My expertise is at the intersection of demography, migration, population projections, and climate change. My recent review article on Sea Level Rise and Human Migration describes one of the most costly and permanent consequences of climate change.

I have twice received the E. Walter Terrie Award for the best paper on Applied Demography, in 2015 Florida State University named me a Top 30 Under 30 Young Alumni, and the University of Georgia awarded me an Excellence-in-Research Award for my dissertation on sea level rise and human migration. More than 270 media outlets have covered my research including Time Magazine, the New York Times, the Guardian, the Washington Post, and National Geographic. My publications appear in a diverse set of journals including Nature Climate Change, Demography, Environmental Research Letters, Demographic Research, Population and Environment, Statistical Modelling, and Population Research and Policy Review, among others. Prior to arriving at FSU, I spent nearly a decade directing the Applied Demography Program at the University of Georgia.
