In his first few years at Brown, Jon worked extensively on smallholder agriculture in Brazil with a focus on forest cover and land use patterns. While continuing his Brazil work, his focus has shifted to community adaptation to sea-level rise and beach erosion in Rhode Island. Both studies help us better understand how political, demographic, and economic factors shape, and are shaped by, our relationship with the natural world.
