I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Public Policy Program at the John W. McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies at the University of Massachusetts Boston. My core interest is in climate change and digital literacy that empowers nonprofit organizations to use digital environments, social networking sites (SNSs) in particular, to support climate change action. My research agenda explores the relationship between the policy process and communication theory with a particular focus on the environment, nonprofit advocacy, energy, and technology.
