My personal webpage includes a number of topics, especially current activities during my retirement.
More detail on these topics can be found at pages focused on my study of the salt marshes in Chatham and my works of sculpture.

My CV documents my academic life in some detail.

Preserving Chatham's Salt Marshes

Since retiring to Cape Cod, I have been fascinated by the salt marshes, which are an important part of the local environment in many way.

I joined the Board of the local land trust, the Chatham Conservation Foundation, in 2017.
I was its Treasurer and served on its Executive Committee.
As chair of the Technology Committee, I updated the accounting system and the membership database.
To promote environmental restoration and preservation in the face of climate change, I started a Salt Marsh Task Force, which I chaired until I resigned from the Foundation in November 2021.

A year later, I joined the Energy and Climate Action Committee of the Town of Chatham, through appointment by the Select Board in September 2022. ECAC had determined that its major priority is to help preserve Chatham's salt marshes.
In October 2022, ECAC submitted a proposal I developed for a grant to support this effort.
In November and December 2022, I began to prototype a GIS map to identify potential migration areas for salt marshes in Chatham to migrate to in response to the rise of sea level and increasing storm intensity from climate change.
My work on ECAC is documented on my webpage about Preserving Chatham's Salt Marshes
