I am a computational Earth science master's student interested in numerical modeling of ice sheets. My current work focuses on testing damage development laws and calving laws. I did my bachelor's in mechanical engineering at Purdue University. Prior to coming to UB, I worked as an aerospace engineer doing structural fatigue and fracture analysis and then spent a summer volunteering as a wilderness ranger in Utah's Ashely National Forest. Outside of being a student, I like to spend my time hiking and backpacking, skateboarding, reading, and tutoring high school students in math and science.
