Biography (Personal Interest): 

My attraction to this department was its combination of infrastructure and biology. Combining these two studies is a move toward appreciating nature and developing civilization. I enjoy Low Impact Development in its many forms and look forward to working with projects here and abroad (with partners in Costa Rica) in the months and years ahead.
