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.
Some of the programs I have created and/or been a partner include (but not limited to):
- Climate and Flood Forums
- Community Flood Watch Project
- Resilient Schools Consortium
- Monitoring Natural and Nature-Based Features in NYS
