I have broad scientific interests in how air quality, natural ecosystems, and human society intersect. In past work, I have used observational measurements to study vegetative ozone damage and to investigate wildland fire impacts on urban ozone pollution. I am curious about the chemical interactions between ecosystems and the atmosphere, how these interactions impact and are impacted by human society, and how these impacts may change or feedback within the climate system.
I actively provide mentorship and support for future scientists and global citizens in my community. I am passionate about engaging with students of all ages and disciplines, especially those from underrepresented groups in STEM. I am committed to making science accessible and to building more bridges between the scientific community and the general public.
