What I Do

As Acting Co-Director I serve as chief coordinator of day-to-day affairs of the PGC, and work closely with Claire Porter to ensure the overall success of the effort. I have over 20 years of experience in science program management, primarily related to the polar regions. Prior to joining the PGC in April 2012, I served as a Program Manager at the U.S. Arctic Research Consortium of the U.S., and before that as the Executive Director of the Arctic-CHAMP Science Management Office at the University of New Hampshire.
