I am a USDA NIFA Postdoctoral Fellow in the Dept. of Earth System Science at Stanford University working with Prof. Rob Jackson. 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.
As a NSF-GRFP and DOE-SCGSR Graduate Fellow at UC Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Lab, I worked with Prof. Margaret Torn, Prof. John Harte, and Dr. William Riley. I received a Ph.D. in Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering from UC Berkeley and a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities.
