PhD Student (E-mail)


I received a B.A. in environmental studies-chemistry from Reed College in 2021. At Reed, I worked with Dr. Julie Fry and contributed to collaborative projects with Dr. Jim Smith (UC Irvine) and Dr. Dan Jaffe (U. Washington). My undergraduate thesis focused on measurements of wildfire smoke composition from the Mt. Bachelor Observatory in central Oregon. My research at CSU focuses on ozone pollution at Carlsbad Caverns National Park (New Mexico) and other areas impacted by oil and gas activities.
