I received my Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies and History from the University of Colorado, Boulder in Spring 2021. I am particularly interested in the intersection between the two disciplines and how they inform our understanding of a changing planet. During my undergraduate career, I was a UROP Fellow and conducted an honors thesis investigating mercury transfers and reservoirs in a terrestrial alpine food web at Niwot Ridge. Over the next year, I will remain a part of the EBG as a research assistant and work on projects involving mercury transfers, alpine ecology, sulfur use in agriculture, and water quantity and quality in the critical zone. I will continue to expand and strengthen my research skills in preparation for applying to graduate school.
