I am an igneous petrologist interested in the magma reservoirs beneath volcanoes, especially the processes that lead to eruptions! Currently, I am an Assistant Professor at Central Washington University. My job consists of many different things. Some examples include teaching geology classes, mentoring graduate and undergraduate students, doing experiments in the lab, using analytical instruments to collect data, coding in Python to process and visualize data, and trying to make geology a more inclusive space.
Outside of science I enjoy dancing, biking, walking with my dog Fuji, and cooking.
