About me

I’m a PhD Candidate in the Department of Geoscience at the University of Wisconsin-Madison studying glacial geology and Quaternary paleoclimatology, and my advisor is Shaun Marcott.

My research focuses on furthering our understanding of the climate system through the application of geochemical techniques and reconstruction of past climate variability.  Specifically, I am interested in reconstructing past ice sheet extent in both Greenland and North America to better constrain future ice retreat.  I am primarily using 10Be cosmogenic exposure dating on boulders left by retreating ice sheets to carry out my work.
