Postdoctoral Associate

Department of Terrestrial Magnetism, Carnegie Science

Research Interests

  • Mantle geochemistry
  • Deep Earth volatile cycles
  • Earth's accretion and early history
  • Planetary habitability

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 DTM Postdoc Spotlight.

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.
