I am a seagoing oceanographer studying the interactions of physics and biogeochemistry in the Southern Ocean. Currently at Brown University as a NOAA Climate & Global Change Postdoctoral Fellow, I work with Mara Freilich and use data from underwater autonomous vehicles and satellites to understand what role the ocean plays in our climate system. I am broadly interested in how mesoscale and submesoscale dynamics affect the efficiency with which carbon dioxide can be transferred from the atmosphere to the deep ocean. Overall, I am fascinated by all things related to Earth science and am thrilled that my job is to ask and answer questions about the amazing planet we live on.

Outside of research, I participate in outreach at local middle schools and am passionate about increasing the accessibility of oceanography to historically margnialized students, including Black, Indigenous, Latino/a, first-generation, LGBTQ+, and disabled students. I am also an avid reader and baker and am always looking for my next cookie recipe!
