Research Description

I am currently a PhD student in the MIT-WHOI Joint Program and a member of David McGee's group. I am broadly interested in the history of Earth's climate, and I use field geology, geochronology, and modeling to reconstruct past changes in Earth's hydrological cycle, particularly from lacustrine archives.
