Scientific Programmer at Trinnovim/NASA GISS
After graduating from Lyndon, I started graduate school in physical oceanography. During my time at
UConn, I received honorable mention for the National Science Foundation Research Fellowship. Also, I volunteered at the Mystic Aquarium for Women in Science Day, and was a teaching assistant for
Coastal Studies and Introduction to Oceanography. I graduated in May 2016 and accepted a job as a contractor for NASA GISS. I am a member of the Carbon Cycle team. We are currently working on two projects. First, looking at how the Labrador Sea Water is changing due to climate change, and how this will impact the air-sea gas exchange and extratropical cyclones. Second, looking at the carbon cycle in the Southern Ocean and how this will change in the next thousand years.
On her experience at LSC
The ATM program at Lyndon prepared me for success by having many real world opportunities, such as tornado chasing, tutoring, and local weather forecasting. These experiences improved my writing skills. In addition, they gave me field experience, and improved my confidence as a teacher.
