In the fall of 2012, I began graduate school at
University of Miami's
Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science
where I am pursuing my PhD in Marine and Atmospheric Chemistry (MAC)
in the Department of Ocean Sciences
as a National Science Foundation
Graduate Research Fellow.
Prior to beginning at RSMAS,
I graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder
where I received my bachelor's degree in
and earned the degree designation magna cum laude
for my research studying
pH in the Southern Ocean.
In addition to my bachelor's degree,
I received minors in Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences
and also earned the
Graduate Certificate in Oceanography
from the ATOC Department.
The first chapter of my PhD dissertation has been published, entitled
Net removal of dissolved organic carbon in the anoxic waters of the Black Sea.
A co-authored paper of mine has also been published,
Fe-binding dissolved organic ligands in the oxic and suboxic waters of the Blacks Sea,
led by Dr. Loes J.A. Gerringa
To expand upon my first chapter,
I am collaborating with Prof.
Chiara Santinelli to
study the optical properties of dissolved organic matter
in seawater samples from the Black Sea.
At the beginning of 2016, I analyzed
in Pisa, Italy, thanks to support from the 2015
Mary Roche Fellowship.
I am currently finishing the second chapter of my dissertation on the results from this project
My defense is now scheduled for 9 June 2017 at 10:30, so mark your calendars to learn about
Environmental Impacts on Carbon Biogeochemistry in Marginal Seas!
I recently wrote two
blog posts before and after attending the
Aquatic Sciences Meeting,
Talking about the Arctic and Black Sea in Hawaii
About the Arctic and Black Sea from Miami
(after), so be sure to check those out! I also update the
whenever I see relevant articles,
so that is a great resource for information on Arctic sea ice extent and climate change in the Arctic.
