"We need a story that reminds us that the continuing degradation of landscapes and the seas is not necessarily a one-way street toward irreversible destruction."

-Kris Tompkins

About me

I am an Alaskan, ecologist, and science communicator. I am currently a postdoctoral associate at the Gund Institute at the University of Vermont, and recently was a lecturer at Princeton University and AAAS Mass Media Fellow at NOVA in Boston.

This site is meant to be a hybrid of sorts, with material related to both my academic and media work. Please feel free to get in touch for anything from research collaborations to freelance writing jobs.
