B.A. Environmental Studies-Chemistry 2021, Reed College

M.S. Student (E-mail)


I received a BA 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, Oregon. My research with the Collett group will focus on air quality in Carlsbad Caverns National Park and in other areas impacted by oil and gas activities.
