University of California, Riverside
Geophysics Master's Student
I am a current UC-Riverside Master's student working under Professor Gareth Funning in active tectonics. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Environmental Science with a concentration in Geology from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Before deciding to pursue graduate school, I interned at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) in the Geographic Information Science department and then at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). It was at NREL that I knew I wanted to stay in the renewable energy field and decided to look for graduate programs with a geothermal emphasis, combining my background in geology with my passion for renewable energy!
My current research focuses on the effect of injection and extraction on surface deformation at The Geysers geothermal field. Check out the research tab for more information!
