I conducted research in the Department of Earth Sciences at Syracuse University with Dr. Laura Lautz where I studied surface water – groundwater interactions as a part of the Lautz Hydrology Research Group. My research used infrared imagery and heat tracing to study these interactions in a proglacial valley in the Peruvian Andes. My research also used hydrochemisty and water isotope data to corroborate groundwater contributions to streamflow using end-member mixing analyses. Lastly, I used groundwater flow modeling of the valley to estimate groundwater residence time. I completed my PhD in Earth Sciences at Syracuse University in 2019 and my B.A. in geology and statistics (minor) at Mount Holyoke College in 2015.
