I'm a plant evolutionary ecologist who is interested in the plants that survive and thrive in the urban environment.

I'm the Director of Science Forward at Macaulay Honors College. Science Forward is a curriculum and open educational resource (OER) that focuses developing students' scientific thinking skills. It's opening event is a BioBlitz where ~500 students and ~30 scientists/naturalists will be using iNaturalist to record as many species as possible in 24 hours. Additionally, I have organized the NYC branch of the City Nature Challenge since 2017.
