Organizing workshops, events and traveling schedules for the Carbon Mitigation Initiative, which addresses the greenhouse problem. Running searches for faculty and postdoctoral fellowship positions.

Quote: "I dove into a new and exciting project, working on the Carbon Mitigation Initiative, and I'm liking it very much. I deal with people outside the University, in Europe and Alaska. Learning new things is exciting to me. When Steve Pacala said that the carbon emissions problem could be fixed in our lifetime, his words helped me decide that it was something I really wanted to be a part of."
