I have spent the last two years working toward a M.S. degree in Quaternary and Climate Studies through the CCI, and in spring 2017, was awarded a NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. I am continuing my education at UM in fall 2017 as an Interdisciplinary PhD student: "Remote Sensing, Archaeology, and Abrupt Climate Change".

I feel that interdisciplinary research is crucial to understanding the complex intersections between climate change and human adaptation. My areas of interest include environmental archaeology, geoscience, and chemistry, as well as the application of remotely sensed data toward understanding how populations can adapt to increasingly variable and changing climates. I am co-advised by Dr. Alice Kelley of the School of Earth and Climate Sciences, and Dr. Daniel Sandweiss, of the Anthropology Department.
