About Me

I am a product manager and physical scientist at the United States Geological Survey, where I work on the National Water Census. 🐟🏞

I received a Ph.D. in physical oceanography and an M.S. in civil and environmental engineering in 2020 from the University of Washington. My dissertation work focused on how climate variability and change affect ecosystem processes throughout the global oceans. I also earned a M.S. in applied geosciences, as well as a B.A. with double majors in biology and earth science and minors in math and environmental management from the University of Pennsylvania.

Previously, I have:

Published work

Some of my published work in modeling climate, carbon, and ecosystem processes include:

📄 Uncertain response of ocean biological carbon export in a changing world

📄 The promise of blue carbon climate solutions: where the science supports ocean-climate policy

📄 Variable particle size distributions reduce the sensitivity of global export flux to climate change, cited in the UN IPCC AR6 report

📄 ENSO drives near-surface oxygen and vertical habitat variability in the tropical Pacific

📄 The significance of ocean deoxygenation for open ocean tunas and billfishes, a chapter of the IUCN ocean deoxygenation report

📄 Deep ocean nutrients imply large latitudinal variation in particle transfer efficiency

📄 ENSO drives lateral separation of FAD-associated skipjack and bigeye tuna in the Western Tropical Pacific

📄 A latitudinally banded phytoplankton response to 21st century climate change in the Southern Ocean across the CMIP5 model suite

📄 Consistent global responses of marine ecosystems to future climate change across the IPCC AR5 earth system models, cited in the UN IPCC AR6 report
