cropped-5d4_6555.jpgI am an author and Ross Fellow in the Purdue University Brian Lamb School of Communication doctoral program. I explore what communication explains about, and how it influences, chronic stressors such as climate change and food insecurity. My nonfiction books include How to Feed the World and The Communication Scarcity in Agriculture. I frequently write for popular press, such as Coffee farmers struggle to adapt to Colombia’s changing climate on CNBC and Food Security’s Red Herrings on Thomson Reuters Foundation News. Before joining Purdue’s Lamb School of Communication, I earned my master’s in journalism from New York University, after which I worked as a communication practitioner for several years. On top of the research and writing I enjoy today, I also love writing fiction, particularly science fiction. My series, Reborn, crafts a tale of time travel that explores when the past and future collide.
