It has been a joy to jump straight into my work at Breakthrough as a Climate and Energy analyst. While completing my PhD in Earth and Ocean Sciences at Duke University, I had increasingly felt a desire to apply my skills and expertise toward becoming a more proactive voice on climate change and climate solutions. I am consequently thrilled to be working on several important initial projects with Breakthrough, including investigating climate tipping points, exploring decarbonization solutions, and evaluating climate and emissions scenarios.
I bring diverse qualities to my new role at Breakthrough, from my knowledge base as an earth and ocean scientist to my experience advocating on energy and transportation issues as a grassroots organizer in North Carolina and Pennsylvania. Our Climate and Energy program is moving in interesting, exciting new directions, and I’m eager to help shape the trajectory of our work moving forwards.
