Shawn Hazboun is an environmental sociologist and teaches a range of classes on energy, community, research methods, and environmental social theory. Her research focuses on the social dimensions of energy systems, including community impacts from resource extraction and energy production, as well as public perceptions about energy and other environmental issues. She is particularly interested in the social-environmental impacts of the current energy transition, especially within rural communities that have traditionally provided the nation’s energy resources. In 2018, she began a mixed-methods examination of the fossil fuels shipping industry in the Pacific Northwest.
