Current Research

As a climate change outreach specialist with the Northern Institute of Applied Climate Science, I am working with the Climate Change Resource Center (CCRC) team to expand online climate change education materials.  Providing distance-learning opportunities for climate change will help the Forest Service move forward in fulfilling employee education goals for the Climate Change Performance Scorecard.
