I am an Environmental Psychologist and am currently a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Environmental Studies Program at the College of the Holy Cross.
I hold a Ph.D. in Environmental Psychology and an MA in Clinical Psychology. As an interdisciplinary social scientist, I combine anthropology of space and place, urban political ecology, urban studies, urban environmental education and environmental justice studies to investigate socio-environmental challenges. I have published extensively on these topics and is currently the co-principal investigator of the StewMAP Southeast New England project, a collaborator on the Blackstone River Commons project and am developing a book chapter for Beach Politics (NYU Press, edited by Setha Low) based on long-term ethnographic fieldwork on the racialization of Rockaway Beach following Superstorm Sandy. Before teaching at the College of the Holy Cross, DuBois taught for several years at the Rhode Island School of Design, and prior to that was a Postdoctoral Associate with the Civic Ecology Lab in the Department of Natural Resources at Cornell University.
