About me

I'm a paleoclimate scientist who applies an interdisciplinary, earth systems framework to pursue questions of modern relevance. My primary interests lie in developing records of past warm periods and episodes of abrupt climate change during the Quaternary. I aim to document the pronounced environmental effects of past climate change in Arctic and alpine settings, including ecosystem and cryosphere responses. My toolkit includes molecular lake sediment analyses, particularly sedimentary ancient DNA and lipid biomarker paleothermometry, as well as cosmogenic radionuclide dating of glacial landforms. I'm also committed to broadening participation within the earth sciences and improving the communication of science outside the academic realm. Learn more about my research and outreach efforts in Boulder, CO, and beyond. 

In August 2020, I will join the Paleogenomics Lab at UC Santa Cruz as an NSF EAR Postdoctoral Fellow.
