I am thrilled to be one of New England College’s newest faculty members. Having spent 10 years working as a water resources engineer, I am excited to bring to the students a “real world” perspective about environmental science and sustainability.
My research foci include:
• urban stormwater management, especially how increased urban
runoff might be managed under climate change;
• the impacts of planning and civil engineering on public health,
especially how urban form impacts walkability and social
• how interdisciplinary topics, such as environmental science and
sustainability, can best be researched and conveyed to college
