Michigan State University

I am an ecogeographer with interests in remote sensing and Earth system modeling. I am an assistant professor in the Department of Geography, Environment, and Spatial Sciences at Michigan State University (MSU). My current research themes include quantifying the impact of forest vertical structure on the carbon cycle and mapping seasonal variations in vegetation in semi-arid and savanna-type systems. In addition to my time in academia, I have worked as an urban forester in New York City, as a restoration ecologist and GIS tech in San Francisco, and on field projects around the US and abroad. When I'm not being a scientist, I still spend a lot of time thinking about plants, as well as riding bicycles, crafting, and hanging out with my family.
