RESEARCH

I am broadly interested in the dynamics of environmental systems, particularly the atmosphere, the broader climate system, and, more recently, lakes. Current projects include (1) monitoring of methane in New York State to better understand sources and impacts on air quality (supported by NYSERDA and in collaboration with colleagues at the University of Rochester, the University at Albany, and Columbia Universtiy); and (2) studying the impact of weather and climate on Lake Champlain water quality (supported by Lake Champlain SeaGrant and in collaboration with colleagues from SUNY Plattsburgh and Middlebury College). Funding support for previous research projects has come from the Environmental Protection Agency, the State University of New York, and the National Science Foundation.

I taught at SUNY Plattsburgh's Center for Earth and Environmental Science. Before coming to Ithaca College in Fall 2020. Before that, I was a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology working with Alan Plumb. I completed my Ph.D. in the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard University. I worked with Daniel Jacob and Loretta Mickley at Harvard.
