Graduate Student | Atmospheric Sciences

I am a PhD student broadly interested in global-scale interactions between terrestrial ecosystems, land use, and climate. Prior to joining the Ecoclimate Lab (led by Dr. Abigail Swann), I worked at a public sector consulting firm where I conducted research for government agencies, primarily to inform climate mitigation and adaptation policies. I graduated from Princeton University in 2016, where I was a NOAA Hollings Scholar and Geosciences major and focused on climate science, ecology, and biogeochemistry in my coursework and research.
