Currently working for the Resource Stewardship and Science Team in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve looking at climate change, glaciology, and geomorphology based out of Copper Center, AK. 

I earned my BS in geology at the University of Arizona (2018) and MS in geology at the University of Wyoming (2022). I am interested in magmatic and metamorphic processes as well as tectonics of orogenic systems .
