My focus is creating South Pacific Holocene and Deglacial paleoclimate reconstructions as a means of extending process observational windows. Specifically, I will be using a multi-proxy approach to assess Peru-Chile Current and Patagonia Ice Sheet sensitivity, as well as remote ENSO and Southern Annular Mode effects.
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.
