About



I’m the Assistant Director of Academic Sustainability Programs and a PhD student in the Department of Environmental Conservation at UMass Amherst. I’m also an instructor with the Integrated Concentrations in Science (iCons) Program and produce sustainability themed videos and podcasts for popular audiences. My research addresses questions related to people, nature, and communications. Concretely, I've done research on municipal recycling success in Massachusetts and on the role video can play in citizen science projects.


I'm motivated by the belief that a planet rich with human flourishing and natural wonder is tantalizingly achievable...if we make the right choices. My work aims to help society have the information it needs to make those choices.
