Deep Earth volatile cycles
Earth's accretion and early history
I am interested in the formation and evolution of the Earth and the interaction between its solid and fluid reservoirs. My primary tools are the volatile elements carbon, hydrogen, the noble gases, and their myriad isotopes. Read my recent Postdoc Spotlight and news article featuring my work to improve Wikipedia's Earth science articles.
I received my Ph.D. from Harvard University in 2016 working with Sujoy Mukhopadhyay, and B.A. from Amherst College in 2009. In my spare time, I like to paint and dance.
