Education

University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, PhD Candidate, Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering

University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, M.S., Atmospheric, Oceanic and Space Sciences

University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, M.Eng., Applied Climate 

University at Albany, State University of New York, Albany, NY, B.S., Atmospheric Science

Specializations and Research Interests

My research focuses on the natural components of the carbon cycle, specifically carbon dioxide uptake and carbon release processes on land. I use climate model data to investigate the flux of carbon through ecosystems on land, the sensitivity of carbon fluxes to climate drivers interannually, and possible signals of land fluxes in atmospheric carbon dioxide. I'm also interested in climate science communication and climate change policy decisions having worked on multiple outreach projects and events in the Ann Arbor area.
