RESEARCH

As part of my research in Professor John King’s lab at GSO, I am working on a Holocene paleolandscape reconstruction of the Narragansett Bay and the shelf areas off Rhode Island. This project employs the use of bathymetric, sub-bottom, seismic, and sediment core datasets combined in a GIS framework. This major project will be ongoing until summer of 2016.

TEACHING

Teaching Assistantship at University of Washington, 2012: Ocean 101; Survey of Washington Waters, taught by lecturer Mikelle Nuwer.
