I am a first year PhD student in the School of Geography, Development and Environment and in the Laboratory of Tree Ring Research. My research focuses on climate variability and change in Latin American mountain landscapes across different spatial and temporal scales. I employ a variety of data types, from tree rings to satellite imagery, to explore climate impacts in both localized areas and large, multi-country regions. For my master's research, I was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to study how peatlands respond to climate variability in the Chilean Altiplano using remote sensing. During my master's, I also worked on a project analyzing trends and changes in growing season rainfall patterns and extreme events across the drought-prone Dry Corridor region of Central America.
