Ph.D. Student in Environmental Earth System Science
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI am a PhD candidate in the Dunbar lab group. For my research I apply principles of isotope geochemistry to sediment cores collected from fjords, a large terminal lake, and a large open basin lake in Southern Patagonia. Specifically, I am interested in reconstructing the westerly wind, precipitation, and temperature variability throughout the Holocene. In addition to paleo-reconstruction, I am working to better understand modern circulation and carbon cycling in these Southern Patagonian fjords.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy current research project is a part of geomechanics project, focusing on the geomechanics in naturally fractured porous media. The idea here is to explore the effect of fracture deformation, caused by different processes, on fluid flow, i.e. permeability and porosity changes effects, and to develop stable algorithms for this process. As a starting point we restricted ourselves to a simple case of single-phase flow with linear elastic reservoir deformation and are trying to solve the fully-coupled problem to investigate influence of introducing fractures on deformations and consequently, on fluid flow.
Ph.D. Student in Environment and Resources
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsStaci is interested in the impacts of land-use change on coral reef ecosystem services, and the transformation of governance regimes towards adaptive management of marine and coastal resources. Her work is based in the Republic of Palau, an island nation in Micronesia, where she is studying the emergence of watershed management and the sedimentation impacts on coral reefs in two watershed systems that have experienced modern increase in land development.
