University of Wisconsin - Madison
My academic research has been cited over 500 times. My non-academic publications have been used as the basis of educational modules, internal project development, and have helped spur engagement of individuals from under-represented STEM backgrounds.
My work is strongly interdisciplinary, focusing on geoinformatics, paleoecology, basic plant biology, quantitative analysis and social systems within academia. I am a project leader within the Neotoma Paleoecological Database, am a member of the EarthCube Leadership Committee and chair of the EarthCube Engagement Committee. I am on the Board of Directors of the Kids Sing Chorus, a non-profit organization that makes a choral experience available free of charge to children in East Vancouver communities who may not otherwise have access to music education.
