Research Interests

I am a Professor at the University of Waterloo, Canada. For the past 20 years, I conduct socio-metabolic research on small islands, tracking material and energy flows through island systems: what and how much resources are locally produced, imported, transformed, used, stocked and discarded.

I have conducted extensive research in the Nicobar Islands (India), Samothraki (Greece), and in several Caribbean nations. I am the co-founder and lead of the research program "Metabolism of Islands" (
