I'm a glaciologist and earth scientist from the Pacific Northwest of the United States. My specialty is the use of glacial ice as a medium for understanding climate dynamics and atmospheric chemistry, employing geochemical techniques to reveal this information.
In Fall 2020 I will begin work as Assistant Research Professor at the University of Minnesota.
I enjoy the creativity and continued learning inherent to scientific research, the challenge of organizing and executing field-based studies with people from diverse backgrounds, and the community that is fostered in pursuits to better understand the Earth system.
In the recent past, I was a postdoctoral research associate at the University of Washington, Seattle, USA and a member of the Δ*Isolab. I also was a postdoc / research associate at the University of Rochester as a member of Vas Petrenko's ice core lab.
I studied earth science and glaciology at the University of Washington (B.Sc. & M.Sc.), and completed my Ph.D. in geology at the Antarctic Research Centre, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand.
