I grew up in Eastern Maine and have always been fascinated by climate and extreme environments. I completed my B.A. in Earth Sciences at Dartmouth College in 2009, my M.S. in Quaternary and Climate Studies at the University of Maine in 2011 and my PhD in Earth Sciences at Dartmouth College in 2018. During the course of my career, I’ve had the good fortune to spend multiple field seasons in the North Pacific and Antarctic.

Research Area:

My research primarily focuses on the response of regional climate systems to global-scale changes in climate. I specialize in using ice cores as an archive of past climate change, particularly as a means of reconstructing temperature, precipitation and atmospheric circulation. Currently, I am focused on understanding past climate changes in the North Pacific and Antarctic regions.
