As a social scientist and educator, I aim to study pressing socio-environmental issues, work to find innovative solutions, effectively communicate science to the public, and create meaningful connections and partnerships among academics, practitioners, and community members where my work is useful to their work.

In my current position as a Postdoctoral Scholar at the University of Washington, I study the human side of environmental issues and look at the role of attitudes, values, beliefs, and behaviors. I primarily focus in two areas – marine renewable energy and harmful algal blooms.

I also hold positions at Arizona State University as Adjunct Faculty in the School for the Future of Innovation in Society and Sustainability Scientist in the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability.
