I am a coastal ecologist interested in tidal wetlands, coastal resilience, climate change, science communication, and science policy. I’m currently a Ph.D. student at Rutgers University with the Department of Ecology and Evolution in the Hartman Lab. 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 (but are certainly not limited to) economics, foreign/domestic policy, social justice issues, education reform, criminal justice reform, science communication, usable science for decision-making, and increasing cross-discipline collaboration…the list goes on and on.
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! Feel free to send me an e-mail to Johnny.firstname.lastname@example.org or find me on social media Facebook. Look forward to chatting and engaging with all of you!
