Project Description

Dr. Teller holds a Ph.D. in Sociology from Brown University. Her dissertation in environmental sociology used interview, ethnographic, historical, and survey data to understand the community dynamics of reimagining and rebuilding a post-commodity agricultural region in Brazil. Dr. Teller also has an M.S. in ecology and evolutionary biology, where she focused on biochemistry and the impacts of alternative fertilizers on nitrogen and phosphorus losses from farms to waterways. Prior to graduate school, Dr. Teller contributed to the Understanding California's Demographic Shifts project, worked in federal policy for a non-profit in support of organic agriculture and public agricultural research, and graduated with a B.A. in environmental studies from Carleton College. Dr. Teller is especially interested in connections between the environment and social justice, and in working to bring more qualitative data into interdisciplinary environmental research, programs, and policy.
