Bio:

My interests focus on soil health, agro-ecology, and sustainable agriculture. I hope my work regarding alternative fertilizers in urban areas will play a large role in mitigating climate change, reducing famine, and affecting environmental policy. I aspire to develop a K-12 educational program focusing on sustainable agriculture and environmental restoration. In the future, I hope my interests in carbon-sequestration techniques, in relation to urban agriculture, and their socio-economic effects will be built upon further in order to aid international urban communities struggling with food and income insecurity.
