As a leading US expert on adaptation, science-policy interactions, decision support, and climate change communication, I emphasize practical, collaborative, solutions-oriented work. I have extensive experience working in the US, Australia, Europe and Canada, in coastal, forest, and conservation sectors, and in urban and rural communities. I have led and participated in projects which assess the impacts of climate change; examine the vulnerabilities and preparedness of communities and ecosystems; identify barriers to adaptation and strategies to overcome them; explore what adaptation "success" might mean, and help communities move toward it.
