Lily House-Peters

Biosphere 2 Fellow
School of Geography and Development

Lily House-Peters is a broadly trained human-environment geographer interested in qualitative and quantitative approaches to water resources research and the human dimensions of environmental change. Her research interests draw into conversation current debates on natural resource conservation policy, the politics and everyday practices of water allocation, distribution, and consumption in drought-prone environments, and the translation of the management logics, such as resilience and adaptive capacity, into policies for the governance of environmental resources. Lily's research draws on theoretical, conceptual, and methodological insights from political ecology, resilience and complex social-ecological systems (SES) theory, sustainability science, political geography/state theory, hydrology, and GIS, remote sensing, and spatial analysis.

Lily received her Ph.D. in Geography from the University of Arizona in May 2016.
