Ph.D. Student, Environmental Studies, University of Colorado Boulder

I am an Air Force Veteran, CIRES Graduate Student Fellow, and current PhD student at CU Boulder in the Environmental Studies Department. My research interests vary, but I’m currently focused on exploring possible economic and population growth futures and what these futures could mean for society, the environment, and geopolitics. I’m also interested in eco-economic decoupling and researching effective strategies for creating favorable environmental policy outcomes. I have experience in different qualitative social science methods and quantitative methods—including data science statistics and dynamic systems modeling.

I have a B.S. in meteorology, MBA in Real Estate Development and Sustainability, and M.S. in Environmental Studies.
