Working in the summit crater of Poás Volcano, Costa Rica

I am a fifth (and final?) year Ph.D. student in Geology at the University of Colorado Boulder.  For my dissertation research, I am studying terrestrial hydrothermal sites in Costa Rica and Iceland as analogs for early Mars.  Besides geochemistry and astrobiology, I am also interested in physical volcanology, computer modeling of geologic processes, and geologic mapping across the solar system.  I have several years of teaching experience at the college level, and love working with students and seeing them grow as scientists – as future geologists, or simply informed members of society.

 

Outside of work, I am an endurance athlete, and can most often be found enjoying the amazing trails and views that Colorado has to offer.
