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).

Personal Statement
I graduated with my BS in FEG Dec 2011, started my MPS in the Fall of 2012, started my career with NYSDEC with Division of Water-Flood Protection and Dam safety at the end of March of 2013, finished the spring 2013 semester then began attending part time to complete my MPS in WRE, in July or 2014 I began working in the DEC's Division of Environmental Remediation-Spill prevention and Response and Petroleum Bulk Storage Programs. Changing my job has allowed me to become trained in many things you wouldn't normally associate with engineering but it has been an amazing career opportunity. I love my job and am so glad I have chosen to get my BS and MPS at ESF.
