I am currently a Lawrence Fellow at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. My research is focused on developing process-based, data-driven models of soil organic matter 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 climate and plant inputs across spatiotemporal scales.
I received a Ph.D. in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering from the University of California Berkeley and a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Minnesota. As a NSF GRFP and DOE SCGSR Graduate Fellow at UC Berkeley and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, I worked with Prof. Margaret Torn, Prof. John Harte, and Dr. William Riley. Prior to joining LLNL, I was a USDA NIFA Postdoctoral Fellow in Earth System Science at Stanford University working with Prof. Rob Jackson.
