About me

IMG_20180503_101210I am currently a Rockefeller Foundation Planetary Health Postdoctoral Fellow at Harvard University. I am interested in understanding connections between the water cycle, climate, and vegetation, particularly pertaining to agriculture. In my research, I utilize observational data from a variety of platforms, including satellites, weather stations, eddy covariance towers.

In 2017, I obtained a Ph.D. in Earth Science at Boston University. My dissertation research focused on detecting and attributing multi-decadal trends in evapotranspiration over the continental United States. Much of my time at BU was spent developing a method to estimate evapotranspiration from data collected at common weather stations, which we call the “ETRHEQ method” (see “Published Models” page for more information on this method and example code).
