Research Interests

I am a third-year PhD candidate in the Boston University Department of Earth & Environment, working with Lucy Hutyra. My research interests include terrestrial carbon cycling and remote sensing of vegetation. My previous education has been in biology (BA, Barnard College, 2012) and geography (MA, CUNY Hunter College, 2016), where I have been involved in projects related to plant phenotypic plasticity and airborne hyperspectral and lidar remote sensing for tree species classification. I am currently working to investigate the link between the solar-induced chlorophyll fluorescence signal measured by tower and satellite platforms and plant physiological processes occurring at the leaf level.
