I work to bridge the science-society interface in order to accelerate the transfer of University of Arizona environmental and climate science findings and techniques to resource managers, planners, policy makers, and other decision-makers in the region. This involves fostering dialogues between scientists and stakeholders, garnering the input of partners to research agendas and activities, developing sustained interactions between University of Arizona environmental scientists, environmental professionals, decision-makers and the public, disseminating research results and products, and conducting workshops on topics of interest to Southwest decision-makers.
