Welcome to my website! 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. I earned my Master's degree in Public Policy from American University in 2017 and my B.A. in International Relations from Mount Holyoke College in 2012.
My primary research interests are 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.
Outside of my professional pursuits, I am an avid football (“soccer”) fan and Liverpool Football Club supporter. I enjoy watching the Celtics play, iced coffee, photography as well as watching and reviewing film.
