B.S., Applied Physics, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, 2014



I am currently a 4th year Ph.D. student studying marine geophysics under the mentorship of Dr. Harm van Avendonk and Dr. Nicholas Hayman. I am using wide-angle refraction tomography to study the role of magmatism and tectonics in crustal accretion at the Mid Cayman Spreading Center, an ultra-slow spreading center in the Caribbean Sea.
