Society's most challenging problems and opportunities exist in complex systems. My goal is to understand and design for complexity by partnering with designers, policymakers, engineers, and scientists. This means I merge seemingly disparate fields to navigate complexity. I have been affiliated with the National Academies of Sciences Engineering and Medicine, Santa Fe Institute, and the National Renewable Energy Lab.
My goal is to understand and design for complexity by partnering with designers, policymakers, engineers, and scientists.
To do this, I research ways to change systems and achieve strategic goals from a practical perspective. I have eight years of experience designing, engineering, and researching the built and social environment. I enjoy solving for complexity by partnering with passionate people who bring different ways of knowing to the table- whether from lived experience or learned expertise. I received a PhD from the University of Virginia and a Bachelor of Science from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.
