Last name: 
GBC Committee Role: 
Executive Committee

I am an instructor and attorney working at the interface of science, law, and policy. My classes explore these interfaces and encourage students to think critically about how science and law can work together or in opposition in the world we live in today. I also continue to work as a litigator, primarily in civil litigation.

Adjunct Instructor
Research Interests (Specific): 
My research interests primarily revolve around biodiversity, conservation, sustainability, Ecohealth, One Health, wildlife disease ecology, and how law and science can be properly integrated to produce on the ground, viable, conservation outcomes. I am fascinated by the manner in which the American court system mediates, interprets, and changes the on the ground application of our environmental laws and policies, and how those interpretations ultimately affect conservation goals and environmental justice.
