Let’s work together toward a world that is more sustainable, resilient, equitable, and resource-secure for all

About Me

Welcome to my personal webpage!

As an interdisciplinary-trained professional, my career mission is to contribute to realizing a world that is more sustainable, equitable, and resource-secure, for all. 

I am particularly passionate about using a systems approach to develop analytics that catalyze an evidence-based, multi-stakeholder dialogue around trade-offs associated with technical, policy, and social interventions to address the interconnected water, energy, and food security challenges

I am also interested in adopting participatory approaches to improve cross-sectoral policy coherence and facilitate the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
