Research interests

My research and teaching interests are focused on engaging students in the sustainable development goals with specific interest in SDG14 and SDG15 associated with biodiversity and ecosystem services.  As an ecologist, I teach sustainability through a lens of both biodiversity impacts but also social equity and justice.

My students are part of a multi-institutional course as part of a research network funded by the US National Science Foundation.  

The Youth Environmental Alliance in Higher Education (YEAH) is a research coordination network of 15 institutions in the US, Peru, UK, and Australia.  The YEAH network hosts a virtual global confrerence for stuents and works to bring students together to learn about climate actions and sustainable development.
