I am originally from northern New Jersey and received my B.S. in Environmental Earth Science from Tulane University in 2023. There, I explored a variety of environmental disciplines with a focus on policy and philosophy. I spent a lot of my time working in student government and at a nonprofit glass recycling facility. After some classes in GIS and remote sensing, I decided I wanted to shift my focus towards research science and enrolled in OSU’s Geography & Geospatial Science program. I have been interested in water as a resource since I got involved in academia. After meeting Mark and reading about his work, I was particularly struck by the room for growth when it came to modeling water supply from snow. I hope through my years here to gain confidence in my technical skills and contribute to some beneficial environmental research. In my free time, I enjoy biking, climbing, listening to music, cooking, mixology, and meeting new people!
