BioI am broadly interested in characterizing natural systems on a molecular level, using both stable metal isotope fractionation and spectroscopic techniques. I entered the department of Geological Sciences at Stanford University as a graduate student in fall 2014. I am currently working with Professors Gordon Brown and Kate Maher on the reduction of chromium(VI), a common environmental pollutant, by aqueous iron(II) complexes and iron(II)-bearing clay minerals.
As an undergrad, I majored in chemistry at Princeton University and worked in the group of Geosciences Professor Satish Myneni, who sparked my interest in geochemistry. My research projects in the Myneni group included developing a method to quantify thiols in natural systems and characterizing halogenation of natural organic matter.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI am a biological anthropologist with primary research interests in evolutionary demography and life history theory. In addition these fundamental interests in the evolution of human life histories, I work at the intersection of disease ecology, the analysis of dynamical systems, and social network analysis. My work combines the formalisms of population biology, statistics, and social network analysis to address fundamental problems in biodemography, epidemiology, and human decision-making in variable environments.
