I am a PhD student studying geomorphology in Noah Finnegan's lab at UC Santa Cruz.
Currently, I am focused on landslide mechanics and hydrology with an emphasis on slow-moving landslides. Much of this work is done at the Oak Ridge Earthflow Observatory, where I deploy and maintain a permanent network of field-based sensors that monitor hydrology and landslide movement. Additionally, I use geospatial analysis, numerical modeling, and laboratory experiments as needed to complement field investigations.
I graduated from UC Berkeley in 2017 with a BA in Geophysics and a BA in Geology. In the past I have worked on questions involving hillslope to channel sediment transport with Bill Dietrich and vadose zone hydrology with Daniella Rempe and the Eel River Critical Zone Observatory. I also had a brief foray into geoarchaeology and paleochannels working with G. William Monaghan.
