About me

Hello! I am a graduate student at Virginia Tech in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department. I am currently pursuing my interests in Atmospheric Chemistry under my advisor, Dr. Gabriel Isaacman-VanWertz.

Specifically, my research is two-fold: I develop new tools to assist in understanding the composition of the atmosphere and new methods for analyzing our findings. The ultimate goal of which is to better understand the impacts of human emissions on the formation of deleterious atmospheric components.

I earned my B.S. degree in 2014 in environmental science with a focus in climate dynamics and a minor in chemistry from the University at Albany and my MS in 2018 in chemistry with a focus in climate dynamics from The College of Environmental Science and Forestry.

After I earn my Ph.D., I hope to do a post-doc in Europe in the area of instrumentation development.

In my free time, I enjoy hiking with my dog, Dan, and training him to be the best dog ever. I also enjoy biking and running.
