I am a Ph.D student working with Dr. Lou Bartek to investigate the impact of climatic change on the geologic record of the Antarctic continental margin. Other research interests include understanding seismic reflection minimum data density (MINDDA) requirements necessary to accurately recognize various depositional systems.

I am currently a teaching assistant for GEOL 101.
