PhD Candidate, Graduate Researcher

My research focuses on the impacts of environmental change on phytoplankton ecology in polar regions. My emphasis is on the role of glacial meltwater and its influence on phytoplankton community composition in the Western Antarctic Peninsula, a polar region experiencing rapid environmental change. I use a combination of methods, including field work, remote sensing, computational models, and data science, to better understand the polar ecosystem from a holistic perspective.
