A little bit about myself:

                I am a 1st year PhD student in the Silver Lab. I am interested in the biogeochemistry of soils, specifically the impacts of soil amendments (e.g. compost) on nutrient cycling and how these processes are affected by climate change. My research will be part of the Marin Carbon Project.

Before joining the Silver Lab, I spent a year as a research fellow at the Max-Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry in Jena, Germany, where I used radiocarbon to examine the persistence of mineral-associated organic carbon through European soil profiles.


B.A. in 2013 from Northwestern University in Integrated Science, Environmental Science, and Earth and Planetary Science.
