Position title: Postdoctoral Research Associate


I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Department of Geology. My research generally focuses on understanding non-tectonic seismic hazards.  I grew up in the northwest suburbs of Chicago and completed my B.S. at Tulane University (2013) before moving to Washington D.C. to complete my Ph.D. at the University of Maryland (2019) and served as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Memphis (2021). In my free time, I can be found drinking coffee, doing something active (hiking, lifting, running), or hanging out with my cat, Nola.
