B.S. in Environmental Science from Northern Arizona University (2012)
My research interests involve investigating how human activities affect
nutrient cycling in terrestrial systems and possible feedbacks to climate
change and greenhouse gas emissions. My
interests range from microbial ecology to global change questions.
Other Achievements, Honors, Awards
In 2010, I received a NASA undergraduate research fellowship for
climate change research.
Big-picture Career Goal
I am interested in continuing research to address pressing ecological
questions as well as developing outreach programs to connect people outside the
scientific community to help solve environmental problems.
I enjoy backpacking, writing, and yoga, and playing the baritone sax.
