I completed my B.S. in ecology at CU Boulder. I then worked in science interpretation at Grand Canyon National Park and Telluride, CO before starting my PhD at the University of Nevada, Reno with Dr. Adam Csank. I'm interested in the ecohydrologic processes of montane and arid systems, and how climate change may impact those processes. My current research uses tree rings to explore the interactions between changing snowmelt dynamics and montane forest ecosystems. Outside of academia, I spend my time trail running, backcountry skiing, and making art.
