Welcome! I’m a research scientist, data analyst, and science communicator. I’m interested in plants, ecology & evolution of urban environments, climate change, and equity. Check out my urban ecology and climate change research to learn more! I’m also excited about translating research and data into on the ground actions to adapt to climate change and design resilient cities.
I am currently a Grand Challenges in Biology Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Minnesota, working at the intersection of urban ecology, environmental policy, environmental epidemiology, and equity. I am cross appointed between the Humphrey School of Public Affairs (working with Bonnie Keeler, Science, Technology and Environmental Policy), the School of Public Health (working with Jesse Berman, Environmental Health Sciences) , and the College of Biological Sciences (working with Allison Shaw, Dept. of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior). I completed my PhD in 2019 in Ecology, Evolution, and Behaviour with Peter Tiffin and David Moeller.
I lead several other ongoing initiatives, including creating a sustainability and environmental justice tool, assembling a parental leave policy database, and facilitating conversations surrounding equity and diversity in STEM fields.
I really enjoy connecting with others and forming new working collaborations. Please don’t hesitate to reach out!
