I turn complex original scientific articles and practical Extension knowledge into digestible stories for public audiences.
I reviewed, edited, and formatted grant proposals, grant reports, scientific journal articles, and other materials as needed. Topics covered a wide range of sustainability science, including chemistry, biochemistry, engineering, and biology.
I write, edit, and provide subject matter expertise for educational products geared toward students and teachers at the 6th through 12th grade levels. Specialty areas include biology, plant science, and environmental science, but I have experience developing physical science and human biology content. I also develop assessments, provide image/video assets, and provide pedagogical expertise.
I researched the potential for escape and invasion by crops grown for bioenergy. I analyzed, wrote, presented, and published my findings in a wide variety of scientific journals. I also edited the first book on the subject, inviting authors, reviewing chapters, and formatting material per the publisher's requirements.
I researched the relationship between invasive freshwater plants and water quality and land use. I analyzed, wrote, presented, and published my findings in international journals.
I developed and taught university-level classes in Ecology and Evolution, Plant Physiology, and Biological Research Methods. I also mentored undergraduate researchers, and helped them present our findings at conferences and in scientific journals. I served in this position twice: first in 2006, then again in 2007.
I researched the invasive traits and behavior of a large perennial grass in California's riparian systems. I also served as a teaching assistant in Foundations of Plant Biology classes over a number of quarters.
Despite major international investment in biofuels, the invasive risks associated with these crops are still unknown. A cohesive state-of-the-art review of the invasive potential of bioenergy crops, this book covers the identified risks of invasion, distributions of key crops and policy and management issues. Including a section on developing predictive models, this book also assesses the pote... read more
