Chris actively worked with federal agencies and Congress to represent the geoscience community and promote sound public policy in Washington, D.C. He also managed the Geoscience Policy program’s social media presence, contributed to information products such as news briefs and the Monthly Review, and updated AGI’s web content. In addition, wrote an article about the ocean acidification, which will be published in EARTH magazine later this year.
Chris earned a B.S. in geology and environmental science at Allegheny College. For his senior thesis he studied how a flood control dam in Crawford County, Pennsylvania is impacting the fluvial geomorphology and the floodplain ecosystem of a local creek. His research interests involve the investigation of past climates through practices of sedimentology and geochemistry, and he plans on pursuing a master’s in the next few years.
