Research Interests

My dissertation research is focused on the use of public informatics platforms to span the boundary between the scientific and public communities, with a specific focus in the area of communicating climate change risk. I am also the Associate Director of the Rutgers NJAES Office of Research Analytics where I lead a team that specializes in developing data informatics systems that combine computer science and data visualization techniques to bring research and data to a broad set of stakeholders. I have expertise in developing geographic information systems, enabling spatial analysis and modeling for research initiatives in a variety of disciplines.
