Marine shells as archives of environmental change.
I am a paleoceanographer interested in nearshore environmental change. I study high-resolution archives (marine bivalves) of historic seasonality and past extremes.
My B.A. is in geology from Colgate University and I am currently a Ph.D. Candidate in geology at UC Davis. My Ph.D. work ties together modern, archival, and archaeological records and applies sclerochronological and geochemical analyses in order to reconstruct the environmental history of nearshore environments of the California Coast.
I'm a Latina scientist committed to DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) in STEM and academia.
