I recently earned my Ph.D. in Public Affairs and Policy at Arizona State University while working with Dr. Tony Grubesic in the Center for Spatial Reasoning and Policy Analytics. My research interests are varied and trans-disciplinary, spanning public policy, environmental justice, risk and vulnerability assessment, along with unmanned aerial systems. The thread linking these varied substantive foci is my admiration for Geographic Information Science and Systems (GIS). Through this set of topics I seek to advance ideas and concepts for conducting and supporting actionable science. I strive to pursue a research agenda that has real-world applicability to government, business, non-governmental organizations, and importantly the general public. In addtion to my academic appointment, I also work as a graduate research fellow with the National Energy Technology Laboratory. My current focus at NETL continues to improve our understanding of the nexus of energy and the environment.
