PhD Student

B.A. Biogeochemistry, Cum Laude, Wellesley College, 2020
Curriculum Vitae


My research is centered around the biogeochemistry of the carbon cycle. I intend to explore the carbon cycle through first tracing the origins and deposits of soil organic matter. I hope to connect these terrestrial carbon exchanges with atmospheric and hydraulic fluxes of carbon. In particular, my research interests center intensely-managed landscapes. The effects of anthropogenic activity, both past and present, on biogeochemical cycles has implications for future availability of human resources, dynamics of local climates, and preservation of ecosystem services. I will be leveraging a connection to the Intensely Managed Landscape Critical Zone Observatory (IML-CZO) to further explore these interests.
