about: I link complex sustainability challenges to strategic sustainability solutions. As a climate & sustainability professional, I engage big problems using data, technology, science, policy, strategy, expert networks, & project management. I leverage my training in sustainability science, frameworks, & policy to develop solutions for impact. In parallel, I use my business experience in management consulting to build trust with key stakeholders. Currently, I am a Sustainability Scientist & Project Manager at Arizona State University (ASU). I am completing my Ph.D. in Sustainability Science at ASU’s School of Sustainability & its College of Global Futures. Before joining ASU, I worked as a Project Leader & Research Analyst for ENGIE Impact, an energy & sustainability consulting firm (+ Ecova & Ecos via acquisitions). At ENGIE Impact, I managed cross-functional teams of engineers, policy experts, & analysts to deliver environmental, social, & governance (ESG) programs for customers. Our team reduced greenhouse gas emissions, affected policy change, & generated energy cost savings for clients.
