I am a PhD student working with Brad Singer in the WiscAr lab group. My interests include high temperature geochemistry, geochronology, and petrology. My current work aims to characterize the eruptive history of a sequence of volcanoes in the Andean Southern Volcanic Zone (Chile), and to interrogate the influence of continental ice and climate on volcanic activity. I received my B.S. in Geological Sciences from the University of Texas at Austin in 2018 after earning previous degrees and working in the environmental consulting industry in Austin, Texas.
PhD, Geological Sciences, The University of Wisconsin-Madison, expected 2023-2024
B.S. Geological Sciences, The University of Texas at Austin, 2018
B.S. Environmental Science and B.A. Plan II Honors, The University of Texas at Austin, 2015
In addition to my academic areas of study, I am passionate about furthering science communication and equity in the geosciences. I am excited to be a founding member of the UW Madison GeoPath initiative, which seeks to connect graduate and undergraduate students through near-peer mentoring, and I also am the founding editor of the Geo-Badgering science blog. Beyond UW, I am a contributor to GeoReadingForEquity. You can learn more about me on my personal website, listed above.
