Kevin received his PhD at Carnegie Mellon University in 2012, where he wrote a dissertation on the lumber industry and forestry in Minnesota and Louisiana from the 1890s to the 1930s. After a brief stint as a journalist, he spent three years writing an environmental history of an endangered desert fish (Devils Hole pupfish) for the National Park Service. He is now working on a book manuscript based on this research. At UCSB, he is investigating the history of land use, ecological change, and climate on California’s Channel Islands during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
