research

University of Maine Sustainability Solutions Initiative, Orono, ME.  2010-2012.
My SSI research assistantship allowed me to work with a variety of stakeholders to prepare for the arrival of the emerald ash borer, an invasive insect, in Maine.  I drafted manuscripts, presented talks and posters, and organized events for stakeholders.

Carbon Dynamics LLC, South Burlington, VT.  2008.
As a researcher for Carbon Dynamics, I provided technical and analytical assistance to the Center for Climate Strategies and the State of Iowa in the process of creating agriculture- and forestry-related climate policy recommendations.

University of Vermont, Burlington, VT.  2006-2008.
While I worked towards my MS in natural resources at UVM I was a research assistant for the Hubbard Brook Research Foundation and the UVM Transportation Research Center, creating a land-use-based, county-level carbon budget for Chittenden County.  I was also an original member of the UVM Carbonators, a research and advocacy collaborative for graduate students involved in carbon and climate change research.

USDA Forest Service Northeastern Research Station, Durham, NH.  2004-2006.
With the Forest Service I was both a lab and field technician on the hemlock wooly adelgid susceptibility modelling project – collecting foliage and soil samples in the field, performing lab analysis, using GIS and remote sensing, and cranking out data entry.

Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, Cambridge, MA.  2005-2006.
The SAO is where I first learned to use Linux computer systems (while I helped pack and move their operations to a new location).
