I have two foci for my research, generally-speaking: education and the environment. While there are times when these areas do not overlap, it is generally the case that they do. The research I conduct is typically more focused on practice and less on theory, but that does not prevent the work from being used in a scholarly sense. Good research, after all, should inform practice.

To communicate my research and its science, I typically write editorials because the information is then more accessible to the general public. However, because research is also my trade, I sometimes publish my findings in academic journals. Below is a highlight of some of my work:
