Abstract
My love for the natural world has brought me to MTU to study wildlife, forestry and now people. Pursuing a world where both ecology and society are balanced is a wonderful challenge.
Synopsis of research
 Our team is working to uncover how food, energy and water systems converge in households. My job: interview homeowners about their perceptions of their consumption. Soon we will set up something like a fitbit for houses that will track their usage. Then we will test behavioral interventions.
Fun fact
This summer, while collecting interview data, I lived on a boat. The boat was always covered in spiders. I nicknamed the boat “Spider Island”.
