About Me

Hi! I am a PhD student in the Jackson School of Geosciences at the University of Texas at Austin (defense scheduled for August 2018). My doctoral research focuses on deformation processes within the Earth's upper mantle. I am very passionate about scientific outreach and communication, especially through museums and other informal learning spaces. I am enrolled in the UT Museum Studies Portfolio Program, and recently participated in the UT Scientist-in-Residence Program, a program which matches STEM graduate students and Austin-area K-12 science teachers.

Feel free to contact me!
