Academic Work

 

This is an ethnographic thesis introducing the impacts and adaptations to climate change in Kiribati. I defended my thesis in March of 2015, and it won the International and Area Studies Department's "Outstanding Honors Thesis" award. The purpose of this research was to use an anthropological approach to document and raise awareness on the way climate change impacts culture in the villages of Kiribati. I am currently combining research from this thesis and reporting work from my Fulbright into a longer narrative that is more readable to a general audience.
