Ph.D. in Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering, University of Michigan, expected August 2022
Graduate Certificate in Science, Technology, and Public Policy, April 2020
M.S. in Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering, University of Michigan, 2018
B.A. in Physics and Minor in Environmental Analysis, Pomona College, 2014
My research focuses on quantifying and constraining urban CO2 emissions, particularly in the Middle East, using a combination of OCO-2 satellite data and Lagrangian modeling.
Specializations and Research Interest
- Urban CO2 emissions
- Lagrangian modeling
- Satellite remote sensing of greenhouse gases
- Carbon cycle
- Atmospheric science
I am a Ph.D. candidate working for Dr. Eric A. Kort.
After graduating from Pomona College with a B.A. in Physics and a minor in Environmental Analysis, I spent one year in Germany on a Fulbright Study/Research Grant studying greenhouse gas emissions from inland waters. I then spent another year working as a research assistant (staff) with Dr. Kort before enrolling in the Ph.D. program here.
Along with my main research, I am also interested in science policy and have completed a graduate certificate in Science, Technology, and Public Policy.
