I am a currently a lab technician working on with postdoc Dr. Sintana Vergara as part of the Marin Carbon Project. We are interested in determining how changes in temperature, moisture content, and oxygen concentrations affect greenhouse gas fluxes from commercial compost piles.
Before joining the Silver Lab, I spent a year as the lab manager of the Kim Environmental Geochemistry Lab at Chapman University, where I studied how various physicochemical characteristics can affect the bioaccessibility of arsenic in mine waste from abandoned gold mines. While my previous research is largely unrelated to my current project, I hope to bring skills and techniques from my geochemistry background to help with various research projects in the Silver Lab
B.S. in 2014 from Chapman University (Orange, CA) in Environmental Science & Policy, with an emphasis in Earth Systems.
