Research Interests: Broadly speaking, I am interested in glaciology and climate science.  I find the ice dynamics and stability (past, present, and future) of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet particularly fascinating and am involved in a project examining the deglaciation history of the Ross Sea.  After exploring climate-related issues in the NGO world for two years, I remain interested in effective science communication and cross-discipline approaches to addressing environmental problems.

Life Interests: Doing just about anything outside (especially rock climbing, trail running, and hiking), singing, and trying out new vegetarian recipes!

Why Dartmouth?: A small, tailored program; the IGERT fellowship; supportive faculty; fieldwork; a growing polar community; and abundant outdoor opportunities.  Dartmouth seemed to have a balance of everything I was looking for!
