I am a researcher, currently as a PhD student under Mark Stacey in UC Berkeley’s CEE. I am part of EFMH at Berkeley and a contributor to COG at UC Davis. I am partially supported by the US Geological Survey, working with Jessie Lacy and other federal scientists out of the Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center. I enjoy collaborating with people in different places and disciplines.
At the broadest scale, I am interested in the myriad forces that affect how coastal regions (especially marshes & mangroves) “work”. More specifically, I am interested in:
I work primarily as a field scientist, but I understand that connecting field data to larger spatial and temporal timescales using remote sensing and modeling applications is crucial.
Outside of technical questions, I am energized by environmental philosophy, infrastructure studies, the social relations of water, and historical ecology. I am keen to celebrate environmental sovereignty through citizen-centered environmental management, science, and activism. I channel some of these interests through membership at TRUST.
