Matthew Barnett is a first-year doctoral student focusing on environment and community. He completed his bachelor's degree at Utah State University, where he worked on the iUTAH water sustainability project, and his master's degree at the Ohio State University, where his thesis explored the social, built, and natural drivers of household water use in a multilevel context. His desire to study environmental inequality and natural resource exploitation among indigenous communities in the Four Corners Region drew him back to Utah State University to pursue his PhD. In his spare time, he enjoys listening to (and attempting to create) music.
