Bio


As a PhD Student in the Department of Earth System Science, Elizabeth investigates the response of Earth surface processes to climate. She is interested in coupling high resolution satellite imagery, field observations, and/or geochemical data with empirical models to answer research questions related to the response of landscapes and other surface processes to climate change. She is currently conducting research that examines the relative impacts of antecedent rainfall and urbanization on landslides using a data-driven statistical learning approach.
