My past and current research draws inspiration from a wide variety of topics with a solid focus on climate adaptation. I focus my publications on issues that provide new insights into climate adaptation, what role adaptation science plays in decision-making, and the mindsets that enable us to make better and bolder decisions.

I strongly believe that two brains are better than one. I have first hand experience how debate accelerates ideas and I thrive on collaboration. That’s why majority of my publications are with colleagues from different disciplinary backgrounds. I am always happy to email a copy of anything I’ve published.
