I am a postdoctoral research scientist studying ice sheet-solid Earth interactions. In particular, I investigate the effects of 3-D Earth structure on sea level, geodetic observations, and inferences of local solid Earth properties. I developed my passion for Earth Sciences in general and Antarctica in particular via undergraduate research; using datasets collected during my Antarctic fieldwork I worked to expand our understanding of the ice sheet and its subglacial conditions.
A native Austinite, I studied Physics & Liberal Arts at the University of Texas at Austin before moving to Boston, MA to pursue a Ph.D. with Prof. Jerry X. Mitrovica at Harvard University. I am now working at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in tandem with Profs. Jim Davis and Jacky Austermann. When not in the office, you’ll find me rock climbing, practicing tai chi, or watching delightfully terrible movies.
