Sustainability Research from a Systems Perspective

My work

examines the sustainability implications of emerging technologies. I take a perspective blending principles from behavioral economics and industrial ecology to form a unique systems modeling approach.

My dissertation research investigates the effects of expanded refrigerated supply chains on food system sustainability. I have also authored research on the use of autonomous vehicles, as well as the environmental impacts of meal kits, which received coverage from NPR, TIME, and The Guardian, among other news outlets.

I am

a PhD candidate at the University of Michigan’s Center for Sustainable Systems.

I earned a BS in Economics and Environmental Policy from Carnegie Mellon University, and have conducted research with their Engineering and Public Policy department.

I have also worked for the National Academy of Sciences, served as the Finance Chair for the Michigan University-Wide Sustainability & Environment (MUSE) Conference, and initiated a partnership between Ann Arbor City Government and the University of Michigan.
