I recently graduated from the Atmospheric Science and Environmental Science Programs at Ohio State. I volunteered in Dr. Andrea Grottoli’s lab, where I was able to help with Earth Science research regarding the adaptive properties of corals in response to climate change. I am also involved with the Meteorology Club at Ohio State, which allows me to plan and be part of educational events relating to weather and climate. Also, as an undergraduate student, I worked within the Byrd Center’s Education & Outreach Group. Recently I received the 2016-17 Taaffe Award for Outstanding Undergraduate in Atmospheric Science, and Climate and Physical Geography. My broad objective is to integrate the physical geography with the environmental change in the Great Basin National Park.
