I am currently a doctoral candidate in Organizational Systems at Saybrook University in Oakland, CA. My research interests are in dialogue, meaning making, and transformative and organizational learning in multi-sector transformational change, as well as complex adaptive systems and systems sciences. I recently published four academic articles in the Proceedings of the 60th Annual Meeting of the ISSS - 2016 Boulder, CO, USA, Proceedings of the 62th Annual Meeting of the ISSS - 2018 Corvallis, OR, USA, and the 2017 Winter edition of the OD Practitioner.
