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

My expertise/interests include:
* Physical Hydrogeology
* Near-Surface/Reservoir Geophysics
* Cryospheric Science
* Crustal Heat Flow
* Basin Analysis
* Geomechanics
* Reservoir Characterization, Modeling, and Monitoring
* Inverse Theory
