My Research:
I studied urban and terrestrial ecology including the effects of land cover change on vegetation dynamics and carbon cycling. My work was rooted in terrestrial carbon cycle science and global change biology, and applies to sustainable urban design and policy.

I am currently a the SEI physics teacher at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School in Cambridge, MA. I engage my students in active learning.
