College is only going to be a fulfilling experience if it matters to you…

What Matters More:
my research
My research:
  • How society produces environmental problems and then blames or tries to control nature rather than alter society.
    • For example, ag pests and cockroaches.
    • Also, floods, fires, and earthquakes.
  • How poor people and people of color come to have more degraded environments than higher income folks and whites.
    • Chicken and egg/historical questions.
    • Spatial distribution questions.
    • Institutional (gov’t, economy, crime) questions\
