My research interests are centered at the intersections between science communication, ecology & natural history, and community-engaged conservation. As a field biologist, I have contributed to projects led by the National Audubon Society, National Park Service, Southern Colorado Plateau Network, Center for Ecosystem Science and Society, Central Arizona–Phoenix Long-Term Ecological Research project, Colorado Plateau Research Station, and others. Additionally, I have conducted qualitative research to improve the efficacy of collaborative research teams, managed outreach & marketing for environmental non-profits, taught undergraduate communication courses in Environmental Humanities and English, and led a variety of experiential education programs on land and at sea.
My interdisciplinary background gives me a unique perspective to think critically and creatively about a variety of challenging subjects. I specialize in creative approaches to environmental problem-solving and powerful, nuanced communication. I have a particular passion for projects that integrate the arts, sciences, and humanities.
