Research Interest/Thesis Project
My project involves using Arctica islandica shell-growth chronologies and annually resolved oxygen isotope records to reconstruct marine environmental variables in the arctic, specifically in response to the North Atlantic Oscillation / Arctic Oscillation dynamics across the northern hemisphere Little Ice Age / Medieval Warm Period/Modern Climate transitions.

Why did I choose to study Environmental Science?
I am fascinated by how we study our relationship with the earth and interested in improving our understanding of the world around us. I chose Environmental Science because with so much still to be discovered in our field, an interdisciplinary approach is the best way to get the whole picture into focus.
