Hailing from Maine's rocky coast, Kyle is an environmental scientist with an interest at the ecosystem scale. With more than two years living, studying, and working in Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam, Kyle has focused on issues ranging from migratory fish tracking on the Mekong to low emission agriculture practices in the rice fields of Arkansas.  At the UC Berkeley Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management, Kyle is pursuing graduate research at the interface of landscape and climate.  Kyle plans to find ways to better characterize the complex interaction between the biosphere and the atmosphere in managed agriculture, forest, and working-land systems for use in low emission development, integrated ecosystem restoration, and climate change adaptation programs.
