About Me

Hi! I am a visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Geology at Amherst College. My research focuses on deformation processes within the Earth's lithosphere — specifically the lower crust and upper mantle — with implications for seismic anisotropy and understanding strain localization. I am very passionate about scientific outreach and increasing diversity in the geosciences.
