Research

I am a researcher, currently as a PhD candidate working with Mark Stacey out of University of California Berkeley’s EFMH Group and with Jessie Lacy out of the US Geological Survey’s Pacific Coastal and Marine Science Center. I enjoy collaborating with many people and during graduate school I have also been a part of COG at UCD in Davis, California, and the Grupo de Procesos e Ingeniería Costera at USM in Valparaíso, Chile.

At the broadest scale, I am interested in the myriad forces that affect how coastal regions (especially marshes & mangroves) “work”. I seek to study:

I work primarily as a field scientist, but I understand that connecting field data to larger spatiotemporal scales using remote sensing and modeling applications is crucial.

Outside of technical questions, I am energized by cultural theory and historical ecology of water and infrastructure. I want to support citizen-centered environmental management, science, and activism. This includes celebrating good education, low-cost sensors, small-group organizing, and independent institutions.
