I am originally from Albuquerque, New Mexico, where I attended Albuquerque Academy. As an undergraduate, I was a member of the Princeton Ski Team. I completed my PhD under the supervision of Professor Claire Tomlin. After a non-research postdoc at the National Ecological Observational Network (NEON), I resumed research as a postdoc at Sandia National Laboratories then held a faculty position at the University of British Columbia. I particularly enjoy spending time outdoors, skiing, hiking, and kayaking.
