This is my third year at NAU majoring in Environmental Sciences: Biology. Thanks to the National Science Foundation, I am currently conducting a research project that will determine a 10,000 year vegetation history from a sediment record near Cordova, AK. My main focus is pollen analysis, for which I am receiving mentorship from Dr. R. Scott Anderson. It is my hope to eventually obtain a Master’s degree in Quaternary Sciences.

I would like to express my deepest gratitude for my family for supporting me with whatever projects I have chosen to begin in the past that I have yet to finish. I have finally found that I am ready to see through ‘til the end. I would also like to thank all my teachers from high school as well as my college professors for having the patience to teach me everything that I am able to use today.
