General Information

I am an NSF Postdoctoral Fellow investigating how climate variability affects thermal regimes and carbon cycling in high elevation lakes. I’m interested in how landscape and lake features mediate lake sensitivity to ice cover, snowmelt, and weather patterns in the Sierra Nevada, California.
