University of Cincinnati

I am a stable isotope ecologist. I use isotope biogeochemistry to quantify the foraging ecology of modern animals and to reconstruct the dietary and habitat preferences of extinct species.

I am currently an assistant professor at the University of Cincinnati. My appointment is split between theĀ  Geology and Anthropology. Prior to my move to Cincinnati in 2011, I conducted two years of postdoctoral research at the University of Toronto. I completed my graduate work at the University of California Santa Cruz. I received my PhD in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology in 2009, my MA in Biological Anthropology in 2008, and my MS in Earth Sciences in 2005. I received my BA in Geology in 2002 from Vassar College.

Humans and Nature: Living in the Anthropocene part of Integrate:Workshops:Systems, Society, Sustainability and the Geosciences:Courses
This is a lecture-based interdisciplinary introductory course. We focused on current social and environmental issues that emphasize the links between raw materials, waste, and products used in day-to-day life. I created this class around my belief that each and every one of us has the potential to make a difference. Understanding what the issues, challenges, and potential solutions are is the first step towards creating a better future for ourselves and our planet.
