As an educator and ecologist, I am intrigued by the natural world, perplexed by the impact humans are having on it, and optimistic that we can change course. My primary education interests focus on student achievement and ways to close achievement gaps in science. My primary ecological interests revolve around species interactions and the impacts we can expect from anthropogenic global changes.
