Climate change effects on human societies (health and migration in particular).
What hobbies do you enjoy outside of work?
I like hiking. I also enjoy walking on campus.
What is a fun fact about you that people may not know?
I am very successful in teaching Romanian to the campus' stray cats. 🙂 When I walk on campus, I usually bring some food for cats and call on them in Romanian. Those around Holden Hall already have a very good understanding of the language—they come running!
