Role in MILES:
Teresa supports the MOSS community and is active in the social science and educational research aspects of the MILES project.
Teresa focuses on human-environmental relationships in the American West in both environmental education and geographical research. She is particularly interested in environmental change within ecologically and culturally diverse areas (riparian corridors, for example). After several years teaching in interdisciplinary and intercultural programs—including the Environmental Humanities Graduate Program at the University of Utah and the Native Waters education program with Missouri River Basin Tribes—Teresa joined the MOSS community in 2014. Teresa enjoys spending time camping, hiking and skiing with her family, coaxing tomatoes to ripen at high altitudes, and all things fiber, including weaving, spinning and felting.
