I am a third-year physical oceanography graduate student interested in turbulent processes at the air-sea interface. I currently study turbulence kinetic energy (TKE) dissipation and the validity of Monin-Obukhov scaling theory in the ocean boundary layer.

Volunteer work and department serviceOn Saturdays during the semester, I help teach a group of local high school girls the basics of html, css, and python as part of the Columbia University chapter of Girls Who Code! You can also find me every year at Girls' Science Day at Columbia University and the LDEO Open House.
I serve on the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences (DEES) Graduate Student Council, as well as the Lamont Doherty-Earth Observatory (LDEO) Colloquium Committee.
