EXPERIENCE

My training in Resources, Environment, and Sustainability (Ph.D. 2016) compliments my earlier academic training in Zoology (M.Sc., 2000) and Computer Science (B.Sc. 1992). This diverse, multi-disciplinary background is ideally complemented by over 30 years of consulting experience which has included extensive research design and field work in coastal systems, data preparation and analysis, and technical and scientific writing. Through this combination of academic ruminations and real-world experience delivering projects to meet client’s needs, I have a substantial tool set to bring to bear on a range of ecological, management, and policy questions.
