I am currently an assistant professor in both the School of Environmental and Forest Science and Civil & Environmental Engineering at the University of Washington since the fall of 2014. I was hired as part of the Freshwater Initiative here at UW.
I received my PhD in Forestry and Environmental Studies from Yale University (2011), a masters in Environmental Science from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, and a B.A. in Economics and Environmental Studies from Connecticut College.
I came to the University of Washington from the U.S. Geological Survey and Yale University where I was a postdoctoral associate involved in a national assessment of carbon sequestration potential within natural ecosystems focusing on aquatic environments.
My focus is on freshwater environments and I study the influence of humans and climate on carbon cycling at the intersection of terrestrial and aquatic systems.
