Biographical Statement: I am a master’s student in the School of Earth and Climate Sciences. I graduated Onondaga Community College in 2018 with an A.S. in Mathematics and Science and a research focus in Geology. I then continued my undergraduate career at the University of Maine in which I graduated from in 2021 with a B.S. in Marine Science/Oceanography and minors in Earth and Climate Sciences. I initially became interested in the role of glacial melt in altering global ocean circulation, leading to further fascination with Greenland glaciers and fjord circulation. My research interests include glacier mass balance and calving, ocean mixing, and sea/ice interactions.
