Teaching

ENV 101: Introduction to Environmental Studies

ENV 394: Marine Conservation

 

Before coming to Washington College, I taught Environmental Science and Biology courses at Stanford and UC Davis. I also spent years as a curriculum developer at the California Academy of Sciences, where I worked with K-12 teachers on science and sustainability lessons. 

 

Research

I strive to understand how humans are affecting the ecosystems on which we depend and apply that knowledge to conservation and restoration. I am particularly interested in the effects of climate change and invasive species on nearshore marine ecosystems such as estuaries and rocky intertidal zones. Much of my work has focused on restoration of native oysters.
