I’m currently a Ph.D. student at Rutgers University’s graduate program in Ecology and Evolution. My research interests are investigating the roles of vegetation in marsh survival, pathways to marsh migration, and the socio-economic benefits of coastal ecosystems. My general interests include coastal resilience, climate change, science communication, and science policy. Prior to starting graduate school, I was a research assistant on a number of projects at Rutgers University with the Ecology, Landscape Architecture, and Civil & Environmental Engineering Departments.
Aside from being interested in ecology, my additional interests include economics, foreign/domestic policy, social justice issues, and education reform.
Join me in my journey of making the world a better place one person at a time as I work towards a life of public service. I welcome any contributions you might have and am always looking for challenging questions to answer!
