Currently working for the Resource Stewardship and Science Team in Wrangell-St. Elias National Park 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 have worked on and studied a variety of geochronologic, thermochronologic, petrologic, and tectonic processes.
