Equity and Inclusion

Promoting Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in STEM is a fundamental goal of the lab. I seek to recruit, support, and retain members from diverse backgrounds and historically underrepresented groups. All members of the lab should be committed to creating an environment where individuals from any background feel supported. I am a member of the Ecosystem Science and Management Diversity and Inclusion Committee. If you have any suggestions, concerns, or questions that you feel will make our lab, department, college, or university a more inclusive environment, don't hesitate to contact me or to contact the department.
