My research touches on the intersection between water, landscape dynamics, and subsurface geophysical measurements. By combining these elements, I believe that we can get a better understanding of the relationship between past geologic processes and present subsurface flow pathways. The unification of past and present will help us prepare our water resources for a changing future.

I have a B.S. in Applied Geophysics from Michigan Technological University, where I gained a research background in near-surface geophysics, geostatistics, and uncertainty quantification. Currently, I am a Ph.D. candidate and member of the Stanford Center for Earth Resources Forecasting research group. For my thesis I am developing and applying uncertainty quantification methods to test geological hypotheses with geophysical data.
