PhD Candidate 

university of Birmingham

I am a PhD student at the University of Birmingham, UK, under Dr. Nick Kettridge and closely collaborate with the Devito Research Group. My research focuses on shallow, ephemeral wetlands in the Boreal Plain and the ecohydrological functions they provide within the landscape.

Previously, I worked on a range of projects from aquifer-surface water coupling in hydrothermal features of Yellowstone National Park, to temperature dynamics in temperate lakes and shallow streams, as well as simulating large-scale ecosystem functioning with a general ecosystem model in collaboration with Microsoft Research and UNEP-WCMC. I enjoy everything related to data science and developing data products that are accessible to anybody and reproducible by anyone.
