I’m a sustainability scientist at the University of Massachusetts (UMass) Amherst. My research analyzes how economic inequality – particularly at the very top of the income distribution – shapes the distribution of environmental benefits and harms through the global economy.
My work on emissions inequality has been extensively covered in a variety of national and international media outlets, including The Washington Post, Fortune, CNN, Salon, The Guardian, Forbes, The Hill, PBS Newshour, Anthropocene Magazine, MSNBC, and others.
I also teach with the the Integrated Concentrations in STEM (iCons) Program, the department of Environmental Conservation, and the department of Biology.
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.
I hold a PhD and MS in Environmental Conservation from the University of Massachusetts Amherst and a BA in Political Science from the George Washington University.
