BS , Earth System Science , University of California, Merced , 2018
As an undergraduate at UC Merced, I am majoring in Earth System Science, with a minor in Anthropology. I work with the SSCZO in two positions: with Michelle Gilmore as an Outreach Assistant; and in Dr. Steve Hart's lab assisting with soils-related research. I am currently interested in advancing my education and studies in hydrology, soil science, and GIS. I plan to graduate in Fall 2018.
