Personal Statement
I'm interested in urban forestry from an ecosystem services perspective and urban sustainability in general. I work with the iTree set of tools to quantify urban forest structure and ecosystem services. I’m also interested in ecological sanitation, the conversion of wastes into resources (integrated ecological waste management), citizen science, and permaculture. I’m a very idealistic person but am grounded in data and science. I see a huge need for scientists to actively participate in movements for social change (in addition to the need to communicate science to the public). The intersection of science and activism is fascinating to me, but is sometimes very frustrating.

Graduate Research Topic
My primary research focuses on urban forest ecosystem service optimization, tradeoffs, and disparities. I'm creating a decision support tool that will help stakeholders determine where to plant and protect trees to best obtain desired ecosystem services while shedding light on costs, tradeoffs, and environmental justice. My work involves spatially explicit modeling, quantifying metrics of inequality, and valuing ecosystem services. It builds on the iTree set of tools (www.itreetools.org). Initial ecosystem services included in the analysis are the reduction of air pollution (via dry deposition of PM2.5 and stomatal uptake of ozone by leaves), reduction of the urban heat island (shading and evapotranspiration), and infiltrating stormwater (supporting municipal green infrastructure goals).

“Water does not resist. Water flows. When you plunge your hand into it, all you feel is a caress. Water is not a solid wall, it will not stop you. But water always goes where it wants to go, and nothing in the end can stand against it. Water is patient. Dripping water wears away a stone. Remember that, my child. Remember you are half water. If you can't go through an obstacle, go around it. Water does.” ― Margaret Atwood
