I am currently pursuing a PhD in biological oceanography with a graduate certificate in astrobiology. My research focuses on the microbiology of Earth’s cryosphere, the frozen portions of Earth’s atmospheric, terrestrial, and water environments.
In addition to understanding the distribution and implications of microbial life in Earth’s cryosphere, I am interested in how different components of the cryosphere can serve as analogues for frozen environments elsewhere in the universe.
I’ve recently joined the Blue Marble Space Institute of Science, a non-profit virtual institute dedicated to high quality research, education, and outreach. Check it out at www.bmsis.org.
