My Ph.D. was concerned with the biogeochemistry and recovery of post-wildfire soils. I work at the intersections of data science, field work, laboratory experimentation, biogeochemistry, and microbial ecology. I was exposed to the issue of wildland fire through 10 years of experience as a volunteer firefighter / EMT in Boulder County, Colorado (fire / rescue / EMS). Two current projects are 1) investigating drought and groundwater quality linkages in Colorado, and 2) the geochemical character of wildfire smoke. I love working in environmental systems because they are complex, and offer numerous opportunities to hybridize the physical and computational sciences.
