Translating science into policy is an important part of my work. Currently, I am a science consultant and technical writer for the California 30x30 Initiative and am broadly interested in conservation and climate policy at global, national, and sub-national scales.

A selected list of technical reports, white papers, and policy documents that I have contributed to writing can be found below:
