I am an igneous petrologist interested in the magma reservoirs beneath volcanoes, especially the processes that lead to eruptions. I am an Assistant Professor at Central Washington University and my job consists of many different roles. You can find me teaching geology classes, mentoring students through research projects (both graduate and undergraduate), 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, listening to FrogRadio, and cooking.
