Elizabeth is an M.S. student working with Amanda Carrico. Elizabeth studies the relationships between the public, land management communities, and the research community in Colorado and the Great Plains. She uses mixed methods analyses and rigorous qualitative approaches to understand these communities' values and decision-making under the rapid ecological changes happening in these regions. Her M.S. thesis investigates how land managers in the Front Range are integrating information about public values into decision-making processes.
