Member, Plant Research & Conservation Advisory Council at The New York Botanical Garden

New York Botanical Garden scientists, postdoctoral researchers, Ph.D. candidates, research associates, highly-trained technical staff, interns, and volunteers work to explore, understand, document, conserve, and manage Earth’s plant, algal, and fungal diversity. Interrelated approaches promote multiple levels of discovery and rapid advancement of understanding. Systematics Geographic Area Programs. With a sustained network of active field research since 1891—and a particular focus on six geographic areas in the New and Old World—Garden scientists work with local colleagues and collaborating institutions to explore, understand, and conserve biological diversity. Plant Groups. With expertise across all of the major, ancient evolutionary lineages—algae, fungi, lichens, mosses, liverworts, ferns, gymnosperms—plus many groups of flowering plants that we see around us—Garden scientists carry fundamental knowledge for finding solutions to environmental and natural resource challenges now being brought about by rapid global change. Laboratory Research. With modern laboratories and state-of-the-art techniques such as DNA analysis, Garden scientists explore plants, algae, and fungi and their relationships at their most essential levels—pushing the boundaries of knowledge about life and leading to new discoveries. Conservation Conservation. With conservation initiatives to identify plant species at risk of extinction and inform plans to protect them and their ecosystems, Garden scientists reduce negative consequences for human well-being and the biological diversity of the planet at both local and global levels. Plants and People. With a focus on useful plants—both those that are global resources with great economic impact as well as species used regionally by indigenous peoples and local communities—Garden scientists find solutions for conserving and sustainably managing the plant resources on which the well-being of people depends. Outreach Training and Science Education. With a renowned professional staff and unmatched scientific facilities, the Garden trains the finest young botanists possible in order to expand knowledge about plant diversity and accelerate the translation and sharing of that knowledge for the benefit of humankind. Science Offerings & Events. With visitor-oriented exhibits, Gallery Talks, Science Open Houses, professional conferences, and more, the Garden enhances understanding and advances discovery about plants, algae, and fungi found around the world—and their relationships to each other, to their ecosystems, and to people

Education
Master of Arts in International Economics
Class of 1977

The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy (also referred to as The Fletcher School) at Tufts University is the oldest school in the United States dedicated solely to graduate studies in international affairs. Fletcher is regarded as one of the world's foremost schools of international relations. Every Fall, the school enrolls approximately 265 full-time students (excluding Ph.D. candidates not enrolled in courses.) The Fletcher School was founded in 1933 with the bequest of Austin Barclay Fletcher, who left over $3 million to Tufts University upon his death in 1923. A third of these funds were dedicated to a school of law and diplomacy. Fletcher did not have in mind a school "of the usual kind, which prepares men for admission to the bar and for the active practice of law." Instead, Fletcher envisioned "a school to prepare men for the diplomatic service and to teach such matters as come within the scope of foreign relations [which] embraces within it as a fundamental and thorough knowledge of the principles of international law upon which diplomacy is founded, although the profession of a diplomat carries with it also a knowledge of many things of a geographic and economic nature which affect relations between nations."

Graduate, magna cum laude
Class of 1976

Since its founding in 1990, Apollo has grown to become one of the world's largest alternative investment managers. As of June 30, 2012, we had total assets under management of $105 billion, with a team of 616 employees located in ten offices around the world. We attribute our success to our key competitive strengths: our investment process and approach to investing, which incorporates our flexibility to invest throughout market cycles and across the capital structure, our deep industry expertise and focus on complex transactions, our investment edge which creates proprietary investment opportunities, and our collaboration with portfolio company management teams; our integrated business model which combines the strength of our private equity, credit-oriented capital markets, and real estate platforms, and also includes a dedicated Natural Resources Fund; our long-standing investor relationships which include many of the world’s most prominent pension and endowment funds, financial institutions and individuals; our long-term capital base; our strong management team and reputation; and our alignment of interests with investors in our funds and shareholders. We operate our businesses in an integrated manner, which we believe distinguishes us from other alternative investment managers. Our investment professionals frequently collaborate and share information across disciplines including market insight, management, banking and consultant contacts as well as potential investment opportunities, which contributes to our library of industry knowledge and enables us to invest successfully across a company’s capital structure. The integrated Apollo platform and the experience of our investment team have enabled us to deliver strong long-term investment performance in our funds throughout a range of economic cycles. Our investment approach is value-oriented, focusing on industries in which we have considerable knowledge, and emphasizing downside protection and the preservation of capital. We are frequently contrarian in our investment approach, which is reflected in a number of ways, including: our willingness to invest in industries that our competitors typically avoid; the often complex structures we employ in some of our investments, including our willingness to pursue difficult corporate carve-out transactions; our experience investing during periods of uncertainty or distress in the economy or financial markets; our orientation towards sole-sponsored transactions; and our willingness to undertake transactions that have substantial business, regulatory or legal complexity. We have successfully applied this investment philosophy since Apollo's founding, allowing us to identify what we believe to be attractive investment opportunities, deploy capital across the balance sheet of industry leading businesses, and create value for our investors throughout economic cycles.
