I am pursuing my Ph.D. at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) researching issues involving energy and environmental sustainability as a member of the Institute for Environmental Science and Policy (IESP). Under Dr. Thomas L. Theis, Director of IESP, I explore the food-energy-water nexus as it relates to climate change and social identity. This research is intended to facilitate more effective climate change adaptation and food policy measures.

About

Children often attempt to emulate the superheroes they watch on TV. One such hero from my childhood was Captain Planet. From the show, I gained an initial interest in energy and environmental stewardship. This interest continues through my pursuit of a Ph.D. in Energy & Environmental Sustainability.

I am pursuing my Ph.D. at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) researching issues involving energy and environmental sustainability as a member of the Institute for Environmental Science and Policy (IESP). Under Dr. Thomas L. Theis, Director of IESP, I will be investigating food system life cycle, food system environmental impacts, corresponding policy solutions and social behavior as it relates therein. For instance, improving access to healthy food, especially in low-income and underserved communities that already lack supermarkets, relates to salubrious living qualities for those populations: increased fruit and vegetable intake and lower weight. This research is intended to inform policy makers and encourage the employment of more effective food policy measures, therefore enhancing the quality of life for many low-income and underrepresented populations nationwide.

Research Interests

Climate Change Adaptation, Food-Energy-Water Nexus, Energy and Environmental Sustainability, Renewable and Clean Energy, Science Communication, and Systems Design
