I am a hydro-biogeochemist currently working as a scientist at Running Tide, an ocean health company. Formerly, I was a researcher in Dr. Daniella Rempe’s lab group working on research related to carbon and water cycling within the critical zone, particularly within the unsaturated zone in weathered bedrock. For my dissertation, I studied with Dr. Rempe and Dr. Phil Bennett at the Jackson School of Geosciences at the University of Texas at Austin (UT Austin). I hold a Bachelors of Arts in Environmental Earth Science from Washington University in St. Louis where I completed an undergraduate thesis with Dr. Jeff Catalano.
Through my work at Running Tide and my research within the greater Critical Zone network of collaborators, I study carbon cycling, weathering, and the impact of changing climate within terrestrial and oceanic ecosystems. My research is highly interdisciplinary and because of this, I am able to collaborate with many excellent researchers through the Critical Zone Observatory Network and beyond. I’ve linked to many of their pages on the ‘Collaborators’ section within the Research page. The research highlighted on this website would not be possible without them!
