Sam I am! I am a PhD candidate in the Sala lab at Arizona State University. My work centers on how water-limited ecosystems are going to respond to drought and disturbance under new climate regimes, and how variable these dryland ecosystems are across landscapes. Here is a copy of my CV.
Previously, I attended Yale University, where I received my Master’s of Environmental Science from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies. I worked with the BLM, USFS, and Northern Arapaho and Eastern Shoshone tribes to explore patterns of biodiversity in big sagebrush communities across Wyoming as well as livestock grazing impacts around artificial water sources.
I attended the University of Tennessee for my bachelor’s degree in forestry.
