Keynote with Mayor Justin Cummings
I’m an educator and environmentalist. I moved to Santa Cruz to pursue an education in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at UCSC, and I earned my Ph.D. in 2013. My work for the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars program allows me to support conservation efforts around the globe and to educate a new generation of environmental and conservation leaders.
