Current work
I’m starting the M.S. GeoScience program in July supervised by Dr. Scott Johnston, lead of the Landscape Hydrogeochemistry Group, at Southern Cross University Lismore. We will be assessing antimony contaminated sediment and hydrology in the Macleay River and Estuary.

Previous work
I was an undergraduate researcher in Dr. John Olson’s Watershed Environments and Ecology Lab at California State University Monterey Bay (2018 – 2022).

I completed a Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) under Dr. Walter Dodds at Kansas State University joint with Konza Prairie Long-Term Ecological Research Station (2020 – 2021).

I was awarded the California State University Trustees’ Award for Outstanding Achievement and
Association of California Water Agencies Clair Hill Scholarship in 2021.

First board story
Whether I’m waders or a wetsuit, I love all things water. I went to a family friend for my first board at age 13. He pulled a board out and explained that the guy that ordered this custom was late to pick it up so it was mine now. I exclusively swore by that board for years. Thanks to it having one of the heaviest glass jobs in San Diego and my progressively better ding repair, it has held up.

Hopefully I’ll get to hear your first board story sometime.
