I believe strongly in making scientific results legible and actionable, and making the scientific process accessible and inclusive. Here are some of my teaching, mentoring, and outreach activities, and I am always looking for new opportunities and ways to improve.
This spring, I will be adjunct faculty in the Department of Botany at Connecticut College. I am designing and serving as instructor of record for the course:
Spring 2024: Plant Ecology (Lecture and Lab; Connecticut College BOT 315)
At Yale, I have been a Teaching Fellow for undergraduate and graduate level courses:
Spring 2024: Environmental Data Science in R (Yale ENV 730)
Spring 2023, Fall 2023: The Role of Methane in Global Climate Disruption: The Search for Solutions (Yale ENV 623)
Fall 2022: Forest Dynamics (Yale EVST 360/ENV 660)
Fall 2021: Watershed Cycles and Processes (Yale ENV 724)
I am always looking to incorporate inclusive and evidence-based pedagogical approaches in my teaching, and I am currently completing a Certificate of College Teaching Preparation through the Poorvu Center for Teaching and Learning.
At Yale, I have worked with undergraduate students as an independent study instructor through Earth and Planetary Sciences, an internship advisor in Ecology & Evolutionary Biology and Chemical & Environmental Engineering, and a senior thesis advisor in the School of the Environment. I have also had the opportunity to work with and mentor amazing students through programs including the Ingalls Field Ecology Program, the Harvard Forest REU, and the National Student Leadership Conference.
I work with a number of organizations working to make science and academia more inclusive, just, and socially impactful, including:
I am currently secretary of the ESA Biogeosciences Section.
YSE Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee
YSE Title IX Committee
Yale University Sustainability Committee
Ecology is a team effort and I work with people and data from a number of research networks including:
