Professional Interests

I grew up in coastal Maine, where my environmental career began with early-morning water quality sampling and invasive species removal. Since then, I've worked in science education and advocacy before completing my masters in climate science and policy. My research background is in paleoclimate, and I'm especially interested in proxy reconstructions of Holocene climate and sea level in the North Atlantic.
