Welcome!

I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Earth Sciences at Dartmouth studying with Dr. Meredith Kelly. I study Holocene fluctuations of glaciers and the Greenland Ice Sheet. In other words, I study how glaciers and the margins of the Greenland Ice Sheet have changed during our current interglacial period (the past ~11,700 years). I do this by using two methods: 1) surface exposure dating of glacial landforms (using the isotope 10Be) to determine the timing of ice recession and 2) analyzing lake sediment cores to obtain continuous records of upvalley glacier fluctuations and environmental change. These data are useful for determining the response of glaciers to natural climate variability. I am a National Science Foundation GK-12 fellow and a member of the first cohort of IGERT fellows at Dartmouth. I am also interested in science communication and enjoy having discussions with students and the general public about science and working in Greenland.
