My work focuses on data synthesis and facilitation of municipal-scale projects that address coastal adaptation to climate change and sea level rise. This work involves evaluating spatial data to identify challenges and opportunities with municipal stakeholders, while collaboratively considering policies and projects that may increase coastal resiliency. I serve as a liaison between the researchers at URI and state agency and local government decision makers to communicate emerging coastal policy topics. Through partnerships and collaborations with various URI departments/centers, I'd like to continue to bring the best available science to Rhode Island's coastal communities while offering experiential learning opportunities for URI students and faculty.
