Geology Ph.D. Candidate, UC Davis

I am a Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at the University of California, Davis. My research seeks to understand the marine biogeochemical history of the California margin in addition to oceanographic patterns of change for their impact on plankton. While I am primarily based out of Bodega Marine Laboratory, I get to visit the sparkling seas multiple times per year and even peek underneath the surface using ROVs.

My career has afforded me varied pursuits and hats to wear, most proudly as a marine biogeochemist, SciComm enthusiast, environmental justice advocate, and PADI Divemaster.
