I am an environmental scientist working on climate policy and air quality at the Puget Sound Clean Air Agency. My areas of focus include low carbon fuels, air quality forecasting, environmental justice and community engagement, low-cost sensors, and making environmental data open, accessible, and useful.
In 2019, I returned to Seattle after spending three and a half years in Washington DC transitioning from a research-focused to a policy-focused career. While there, I first served as a served as a AAAS Science and Technology Policy Fellow at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, and then as a science and technology policy advisor to a Member of Congress.
My background is in environmental science with experience in academia, industry, and the executive and legislative branches of the federal government. I have strong analytical and written and oral communication skills. I excel at distilling complex topics into concise summaries and translating technical information into accessible, audience-appropriate formats. I’m a creative thinker, a coalition builder, and a pragmatist with a passion for using science to improve people’s lives.
