Coastal Resilience in New York City

As the Coastal Resilience Extension Specialist for New York Sea Grant and the Science and Resilience Institute at Jamaica Bay, I served as a primary technical resource for coastal communities surrounding Jamaica Bay and throughout New York City on topics relating to climate and coastal hazards, severe-weather events and preparedness, hazard mitigation, and habitat restoration. I develop extension, outreach, education, and training programs to support community engagement and research efforts to enhance resilience.
