Currently, I am a PhD student working at the University of Texas Institute for Geophysics. I am researching the importance of groundwater and geothermal heat flow on the dynamics of the East Antarctic Ice Sheet via numerical modeling and geophysical observations.

My expertise/interests include:
Near-Surface Applied Geophysics
Heat Transfer Coupled to Subsurface Fluid Flow
Cryospheric Science
Reservoir Characterization and Modeling
Inverse Theory
