My research and teaching span disciplines within the fields of landscape architecture, ecological design, restoration, and planning to facilitate healthy, sustainable societal and ecological interactions through design. I teach landscape and ecological design courses that highlight principles, practices, and precedents encouraging students to design projects that benefit both humans and natural systems. My work ranges from the site scale to the community scale, including design of streets, parks, and other public places, as well as private properties.
