I am a PhD student in the Department of Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences at Brown University, where I am funded by an National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship. My research involves using remote sensing to study the impact of climate change on Arctic hydrologic processes. I'm particularly interested in large-scale patterns in surface water across the terrestrial pan-Arctic region and the supraglacial hydrology of the Greenland Ice Sheet. I'm also a scientific ambassador for Planet and am currently developing new methods for hydrologic remote sensing using high resolution CubeSat imagery.
I have a BS in Geophysics from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where I was a Morehead-Cain Scholar, and I completed my MPhil in Polar Studies at the Scott Polar Research Institute at the University of Cambridge where I was a Gates Cambridge Scholar. I am also passionate about polar science communication and outreach and have worked as a Geoscientist-in-the-Park at Mount Rainier National Park, leading public programs about glaciology and the impact of climate change. When I'm not in the lab or the field, I can be found running, hiking, traveling or cooking vegetarian food.
