about

I am a Research Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies and the Science Outreach Coordinator at Dartmouth's Institute of Arctic Studies. I study the impacts of rapid environmental change on population and community dynamics in northern freshwater ecosystems. My current projects include testing how Arctic warming impacts aquatic-terrestrial linkages, including the role that emerging aquatic insects (mosquitoes) play in social-ecological systems. In addition to research, I am Co-PI on a NSF grant for international science outreach in Greenland and Antarctica and I teach in Dartmouth's Environmental Studies Program.
