Personal Statement
I'm interested in urban forestry and urban sustainability. My interests that generally fall into these categories also include the conversion of wastes into resources, citizen science, permaculture, and community based research. Furthermore, I'm passionate about the communication of science and the intersections and complex (sometimes frustrating!) relationships between science and activism.

Graduate Research Topic
Here's the title of my work: Urban forest ecosystem service optimization, tradeoffs, and disparities: a spatially explicit decision support tool. Trees provide ecosystem services like filtering air pollution, infiltrating stormwater, and mitigating the urban heat island effect. Trees can be strategically planted to optimize these services, but there is no existing tool to help accomplish this. I will develop a tool that will identify optimal locations to plant trees to obtain desired ecosystem services and also address aspects of environmental justice. It will build off the iTree (www.itreetools.org) suite of urban forestry tools.
