I am a Ph.D. candidate and NSF-GRFP and DOE-SCGSR Graduate Fellow at UC Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab (LBNL profile) working with Prof. Margaret Torn, Prof. John Harte, and Dr. William Riley. My research is focused on developing process-based, data-driven models of soil decomposition and formation. I am particularly interested in understanding the environmental controls of soil carbon dynamics and how soil carbon storage responds to changes in temperature and plant inputs across spatiotemporal scales.
Prior to joining the Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering Department at UC Berkeley, I received my B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities.
