I am Project Director at the MIT Environmental Solutions Initiative (ESI), where I expand MIT's public engagement on climate change.  From 2013 - 2018, I was on the Climate CoLab team, starting off as the Community & Partnerships Manager and then in 2014 assuming the Project Manager role.

I also lead an international volunteer-run non-profit organization called Civic Series (, that runs public events and workshops that help people join the local, national and global conversation about the most critical issues of our time.
