I'm currently a PhD student working with Dr. Marc Hesse in the Geosciences department at UT Austin, graduating in 2018. My research centers around the relationships between earthquakes, groundwater and deformation.

I graduated from the University of South Carolina in 2013 with a B.S. in Geophysics, where I also minored in Marine Science. While there, I worked in the Tectonics lab under Dr. Jim Knapp for 2 and a half years. My senior thesis focused on using 2D seismic lines to locate major tectonic features, specifically transform zones, within the South Georgia Rift.  I was also a member of USC's NCAA Equestrian team for all four years.
