Bio

I graduated from Northern Arizona University with a double major in Environmental Science and Geology.

Research

My undergraduate research focused on the reconstruction of a fire regime in the area surrounding a small pond near Vandenberg Air Force Base in Santa Barbara County. I am interested in how sea level change can be used as a proxy to climate. I am currently working on a Master’s, which is focused on an environment reconstruction of the Nueces Bay in Texas.
