Research Interests

I study natural variability within the current Holocene interglacial period to better understand modern climate and to help isolate which changes are anthropogenic. My dissertation work focuses on South Westerly Wind migrations on human timescales, which influences Southern Hemisphere precipitation and global atmospheric carbon dioxide concentrations.

Short History

Originally from Bucks County Pennsylvania, I moved to NYC for a dual B.A. between Columbia University and the Jewish Theological Seminary of America in Environmental Science and Modern Jewish Studies. After graduating, I spent a year in Israel teaching English and working in an organic geochemistry lab at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. I started my PhD with Dr. Yair Rosenthal at Rutgers in 2018. Outside of science, I enjoy cooking, spending time with my family, and frequent travel.
