Volcanologist and Unapologetic Gravity Geek
Hello and welcome!
I’m a PhD student at Cornell, using satellite and ground-based geophysical data to study volcanoes. In the past I have worked for Micro-g LaCoste, analyzing gravity data and helping to test and design gravity meters. I completed my Master’s thesis on geophysics and volcanology at Simon Fraser University. My twin passions are geophysics and volcanology. I am fascinated by volcanoes both in a geological and a human sense. I am mad for geophysics, endlessly curious to find new and better ways to "see" under volcanoes with geophsyics. My research to date has mainly focused on using gravimetry to study volcanoes; however, I am now expanding my toolbox to include InSAR volcano deformation as well!
