Founder and Chief Scientist at the environmental consulting firm Radical Research, LLC. Adjunct Professor of Environmental Analysis at Pitzer College. Vice-chair of Riverside Neighbors Opposing Warehouses. I have 25 years of experience as an atmospheric scientist, 20 years of experience as an environmental consultant, and a little over a year of experience as a community activist and professor.

My atmospheric science expertise includes near-road pollution gradients, health-risk assessments, spatio-temporal variability, source apportionment, emissions characterization, climate change, air toxics, and isotopic compositions. I typically apply statistical analysis and geospatial visualization methods to quantify and characterize air quality issues. I also develop custom applications for the display and visualization of large and complex datasets.
