About Me

I am a Presidential Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities in the Civil, Environmental, and Geo-Engineering Department. At Minnesota I work with Xue Feng and the Minneapolis-St. Paul Urban Long-Term Ecological Research (MSP LTER) program investigating plant-water-heat dynamics in urban environments. I completed my PhD in Environmental Engineering at UC Berkeley in Summer 2022 where I worked with Sally Thompson studying ecohydrology. Prior to that, I spent a year at the University of Cambridge completing an MPhil in Earth Sciences as a Churchill Scholar, where I worked with Sasha Turchyn studying interactions of carbon, sulfur, and iron cycling in salt marshes. I did my undergraduate degree in Chemical Engineering at the University of Arizona as a Flinn Scholar. To find out more about my path to and thoughts on ecohydrology, you can check out my "Meet a Leaf" profile on the AGU Ecohydrology site or head over to the Research section to find out what I've been working on. Outside of science, I enjoy running, baking, and cheering on my hometown Arizona Wildcats.
