About Me

My research centers on the connection between international environmental policy and its local impacts and implementation. I use practice-oriented research to look at multi-stakeholder decision-making and the movement of policies, technologies, and ideas. My current doctoral research focuses on the role of science and social learning in urban water governance in Peru, especially with respect to scientific and technical knowledge.  Prior to coming to American University, I worked at the U.S. State Department on environment and trade policy, where I collaborated with over 15 countries to advance environmental policy and private sector implementation of environmental practices.  I have Masters degrees in international environmental policy from the Fletcher School of Law & Diplomacy and in Urban & Environmental Policy & Planning from Tufts University, and a BS in Environmental Science from the University of Mary Washington.  I have completed research on renewable energy, climate change policy, sustainable development, global forest governance, and environment and trade.
