SUMMARY STATEMENT
I am a PhD student in the Marine Estuarine Environmental Science Graduate Program at the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science. My goal is to pursue a career in environmental management with focuses in science communication, citizen science, and community engagement. I am interested in exploring the interface of cultural anthropology and ecology and conducting applied research in order to understand anthropogenic impacts on the environment and solve transdisciplinary problems related to ecosystem management and ecological restoration.
