After four years at the Colorado School of Mines, I graduated in May 2017 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Geophysics and a minor in Geology. While completing my undergraduate degree I completed a fellowship at the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography in the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship in Oceanography (SURFO) program where I worked on identifying and locating non-volcanic tremors in south central Alaska. Upon graduation I was awarded the George R. Pickett Memorial Award for my interest in borehole geophysics.

The summer after graduation I worked as an Intern in the Pathways program at the USGS Hazards Science Center processing 2D seismic data in order to analyze fault zones in both northeastern Washington and southwestern Oklahoma. I continue to work there over the school year part time.

I joined RCP in the fall of 2017 and am pursuing a Master of Science degree in Geophysics.


My research interests include seismic processing and interpretation and working closely with other disciplines to characterize reservoirs.


In my spare time enjoy running, biking, hiking, and working out at the gym when there is bad weather. I try to stay fairly active, but I also enjoy quiet evenings watching Netflix or reading.
