After completing my B.A. in Earth and Environmental Sciences from Wesleyan University (CT) in 2016 I took a year off from school to broaden my academic background and work in the ‘real world’ before applying to graduate school. I received my M.S. in Geology from UC Davis in 2019 where I studied the blue carbon potential of temperate seagrass meadows in California. I am currently pursuing my PhD in Earth Science at UC Santa Barbara where I am investigating sulfur cycling, carbon storage and the preservation of organic matter in coastal vegetative habitats and oxygen minimum zones.
