I am an Assistant Research Professor of Climate Risk Management in the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute (EME) at Penn State. I work within the Network for Sustainable Climate Risk Management (SCRiM).
My research focuses on how decision-making for social and economic systems adapting to changing climate risk. This work involves uncertainty quantification and modeling decision-making under uncertainty. I also use integrated assessment models to quantify future climate risks and trade-offs associated with sustainable development. For more detailed information, see my research page.
I received a B.S. in Mathematics and a B.A. in Philosophy from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign in 2004. I completed my M.S. in Energy & Mineral Engineering in 2015 and my Ph.D in Energy & Mineral Engineering in 2018.
