Project Description

Mr. Lade holds an M.P.P. in environmental policy from Oregon State University, an M.S. in geology from University of North Carolina Wilmington, and a B.A. in communication from Tulane University. His master’s work in environmental policy explored narrative shifts within Louisiana’s coastal management network, and his master’s work in geology involved creating permanent inundation risk assessment maps for southeast Louisiana and the New Orleans metropolitan area. His academic interests include public policy, cartography, geoscience education, and science communication. Mr. Lade gained experience as a science communicator through teaching at the university and high school levels. He developed policy experience through positions at the Oregon State Legislature and the Oregon Department of Transportation.
