I am a postdoctoral research fellow in the John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. In the first two years at Harvard, I worked with Dr. Loretta Mickley in the Atmospheric Chemistry Modeling Group. My research focused on using a coupled modeling framework, which linked a dynamic vegetation model (LPJ-LMfire) to a chemical transport model (GEOS-Chem), to investigate the impacts of future changes in climate, vegetation, and land use practices on dust mobilization and wildfire activity. Now I am working on a new project with Dr. Steve Wofsy on MethaneSAT and MethaneAIR data analysis and science applications.
Before moving to Massachusetts, I received my Ph.D. at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, MI, where my research interests centered on using the NCAR Large-eddy simulation model (LES) and the WRF-Chem model to interpret the vertical distribution of biogenic volatile organic compounds. At the University of Michigan, I also did a CESM project investing the impact of aerosol deposition on snowmelt over the Greenland Ice Sheet. From a Graduate Student to a Postdoctoral Fellow, I am extending my research interest from regional atmospheric chemistry modeling of trace gases to global modeling of aerosol-climate interactions.
