Research Summary

I recently defended my Masters' research under the supervision of Dr. William H. McDowell at the University of New Hampshire, and will be pursuing a PhD with Dr. McDowell beginning in the Fall of 2019. My thesis focused on investigating the controls on greenhouse gas concentrations in 20 streams across a land use gradient in southeastern New Hampshire, USA. Prior to pursuing my M.Sc., I received my B.A. from St. Olaf College (Minnesota) in Chemistry and Environmental Studies where I first became interested in aquatic biogeochemistry through an independent research project focusing on the impact of agricultural activities on greenhouse gas concentrations in streams. I am broadly interested in biogeochemical cycling in freshwater ecosystems and studying how climate and land use changes will affect these cycles and overall ecosystem function.
