I am pursuing a PhD in Sustainability. During my time at Arizona State University I will be investigating the interactions of lake associations, lake ecosystems and anglers in northern Wisconsin through application of collective action theory and agent-based modeling. I hope to apply these methods to human behavior and decision-making related to reforestation in the future. I'm interested in how grass-roots organizations and government policies influence behavior and decision making related to sustainability questions. I would like to understand what is or isn't working and how to influence behavior to plan for the future.

Before enrolling at ASU, I earned my BS in Marketing and BA in French at Miami University and worked for 7 years in the tech and digital media industry. I enjoy trekking, yoga, coffee and practicing French and Spanish.

Spoken Languages:
French (advanced); Spanish (intermediate)
