Ph.D. Student

My research interests are paleoclimatology, dendrohydrology, wood anatomy, and Arctic vulnerability to climate change.

Before attending the University of Arizona, I was a research assistant on two separate projects, one at UCLA and the other at CSUN, and before that I worked as a GIS technician at the International Medical Corps. At UCLA I classified the health of Hawaiin coral reef ecosystems from underwater photography as part of a project to test the capability of the HyspIRI (Hyperspectral Infrared Imager) to detect coral bleaching. At CSUN I spatially modeled the isotopic composition of small mammal species to track landscape changes over time.
