My research interests concern the manner in which the residents of megacities created, described, and then attempted to mitigate air pollution. I am interested in analyzing how different environmental, political, economic, and cultural systems have impacted air quality in Latin American cities. At a time in which the global climate is rapidly warming, I hope my research will lead to a better picture of how humanity understands its atmosphere and the most-effective mechanisms by which societies can bring about positive change. In my spare time I enjoy hiking, camping, tennis, swimming, observing the weather, and spending time with my family.
