about: I am a sustainability social scientist and project manager at Arizona State University working in its College of Global Futures. I am also a Ph.D. candidate (ABD) in the School of Sustainability at ASU. My dissertation research investigates how climate change scholars function and cope in a ‘wicked problem occupation’. I combine sustainability, social psychology, and identity scholarship using a mixed-methods design to study how sustainability professionals maintain a positive occupational identity amidst their engagement with complex and overwhelming environmental problems such as climate change. In my work I adopt an interdisciplinary, pragmatic, and collaborative approach to sustainability scholarship and sustainability problems. Prior to coming to ASU, I was a project manager and analyst for ENGIE Insight, an energy and sustainability management group. I am currently seeking career opportunities for my next role.
interests: political ecology of sustainable development; social psychology of climate change; climate and energy politics; science activism; sustainable finance.
