As a political ecologist, she uses ethnography to explore questions of power, knowledge, and justice in case studies from rural villages to international policy arenas. Her current research focuses on the rise of market-based environmentalism, popular resistance to it, and associated shifts in environmental governance. Prior to receiving her PhD from the University of California at Berkeley, Corson spent a decade as an environment and development policy analyst. Her interdisciplinary academic training, in biology, development studies, and environmental economics, as well as political ecology, underpins an interest in interdisciplinary teaching and research.
