I am a Ph.D. student at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, under the instruction of Beth Caissie (USGS) and Sarah Fowell. My research involves the 2023 Bering Strait expedition on the R/V Sikuliaq.
I received my master’s degree at Iowa State University. Working with the Stable Isotope Paleo Environmental Research Group (SIPERG) with Alan Wanamaker. My research involved using stable isotopes from speleothems to determine past changes in the hydrologic cycle during the Pleistocene.
I earned my BS at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in August 2021. While there, I was an undergrad researcher under Dr. Jessica Conroy and studied paleo-lagoon deposits of benthic foraminifera. In an effort to understand how sea surface temperatures and salinity changed from 4500-1700 calendar years before the present.
