Biographical Statement: I am a master’s student in the School of Earth and Climate Sciences. I graduated from Middlebury College in 2016 with a B.A. in Physics. From 2017-2019, I taught high school mathematics on the Big Island of Hawaii with Teach For America, and received a Master of Science in Secondary Education from Johns Hopkins University. I have also worked as a NOLS instructor since 2014, leading mountaineering expeditions in Alaska, Patagonia, New Zealand, and the Pacific Northwest. Through these experiences, I became very interested in understanding the geophysical properties that affect glacial movement and recession, particularly with regards to changing climate. At the University of Maine, my research focuses on glaciology, using various modeling methods and data-collecting techniques.
