With a passion for creating positive change, I have dedicated my career to providing data-driven analyses to inform decision-making on ESG matters. I have developed a reputation for delivering comprehensive analyses that help organizations navigate the complexities of ESG sustainability. My unique ability to synthesize complex datasets on ESG topics sets me apart was recognized with my award-winning dissertation. Supported by federal, international, corporate, and foundation grants, my work has been recognized for its depth and breadth.
