Pronouns: they/them/she/her

I'm a PhD student in Kiona Ogle's Ecological Synthesis Lab at Northern Arizona University and I study plant ecophysiology and ecosystem water fluxes in semi-arid ecosystems. My research interests include evapotranspiration partitioning, flux tower measurements, stable isotope analysis, and Bayesian modeling.

In May 2019, I graduated from the University of California Berkeley with a BS in Molecular Environmental Biology and a concentration in Ecology. At Berkeley, I was an undergraduate research assistant in the Ackerly Lab, where I studied blue oak physiology and northern California grassland ecology. I also cleaned and repaired whale skulls and other fun things for the UC Museum of Paleontology. In the fall of 2018, I studied crustose coralline algae at the Gump Station in Moorea, French Polynesia.
