Research Interests: My research interests stem from my love of polar environments. Specifically, I am interested in the intersection of physical and biological processes, especially in their interaction in controlling landscape evolution in areas dominated by glacial activity. I am also dedicated to science education and communication, and I hope to share my research with many audiences throughout my time at Dartmouth.
Life Interests: Outdoor activities, including hiking, backpacking, back-country skiing, and canoeing; playing the cello and listening to live music; cooking and eating delicious local food; reading; origami; and knitting.
Why Dartmouth?: The IGERT program, with its amazing opportunities for polar fieldwork, community of polar scientists, and focus on interdisciplinary research; the small and supportive Earth Sciences department; the beautiful location of the Upper Valley, which provides so many opportunities for outdoor adventures!
