I am a geochemist currently beginning work as a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the lab of Mark Torres at Rice University. My PhD thesis at Caltech was advised by Jess Adkins and completed in October 2020. In my thesis research, I focused on the using sulfur isotopes to understand processes in the modern and ancient marine sulfur cycle. More broadly, I am interested in reconstructing past Earth surface processes and chemical fluxes using the geochemical study of sedimentary materials. Our understanding of how these processes have operated in the past informs our predictions of how the processes may respond to future changes to the Earth system (especially anthropogenic global warming).
My first journal article was recently (Sept. 2020) published in the journal Earth & Planetary Science Letters and can be found here. My PhD thesis will also be available to the public soon.
I am passionate about increasing diversity and inclusion, mental health awareness, and public outreach within the geosciences. I also enjoy learning about and implementing new pedagogical strategies shown to increase educational equity and effectively engage students in the classroom. You can learn more about some of the work I've done and cool resources I've come across here.
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, I am most accessible by email and social media. Please see the footer banner for links to my email, my LinkedIn page, and my Twitter page. Looking forward to hearing from you!
