Communicating carbon and climate science to the public and policymakers is an important aspect of my research. I believe that clear, non-technical descriptions of science and how it interacts with decisionmaking can help enrich public understanding of global environmental change, assist decisionmakers leading to better decisionmaking and commitment from the public and private sector in operationalizing policies to mitigate climate change. To that end I am always willing to engage the media on carbon/climate science and policy.

Please feel free to contact me concerning TV, radio, or print communications.
