Office Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research, Room 216. (Map)
I am a first year Masters student in the School of Geography and Development, as well as a research assistant in the Laboratory of Tree-Ring Research. My primary research interests include climate variability, monsoon, impacts of drought, and tree-ring growth response to climate variables. This year I will be working on reconstructing past climate using tree ring chronologies from the Navajo and Hopi Nations, in order to frame the current drought in a long-term perspective and help resource managers make decisions and prepare for future droughts.
I received a BS in Environmental Science from Western Washington University, with my undergraduate research focusing on the effects of community assembly on invading plant species in the serpentine grasslands.
I am very excited to be here and look forward to seeing where my research takes me!
