ABOUT ME

I am currently pursuing a master's degree at the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies (FES). I am a graduate of UC Berkeley's College of Natural Resources, with a focus on U.S. environmental policy. Prior to entering Yale FES I was a Senior Policy Advisor at Carbon180. I am interested in policy development and analysis for nature-based climate solutions and negative emissions technologies (NETs).

EDUCATION

RESEARCH INTERESTS

Agriculture and Sustainable Land Use

To effectively mitigate the worst impacts of climate change, the agricultural sector will need to pivot from an emissions source to a sink. I am interested in policy research and development to incentivize and scale climate-smart agricultural practices.

Master of Environmental Management 

Concentration: Environmental Policy Analysis

Negative Emissions Technologies 

Most climate modeling efforts demonstrate that negative emissions technologies (NETs), including DAC, will be necessary to cost-effectively mitigate climate change without adverse economic, social, and environmental impacts. I am interested in developing the policy and regulatory landscape needed to commercialize and deploy these technologies.
