earlier research projects
As a Keck geology consortium intern and for my senior thesis at Beloit College, I investigated changes in sediment sources for tidal coves of the CT River estuary.
Tools used: Sediment core description, C/N analysis
As a USGS/NAGT intern, I assisted with a study of amphibian development and survival related to arsenic and antimony contamination in an area of active mining (Stibnite mine, Yellow Pine, ID); Additional experience included assisting with invertebrate sampling both in riparian habitat at the Stibnite mine and in areas of the northern Basin and Range province; as well as helping with a biomass study of sagebrush steppe plants.
Select tools used: water sampling, tissue sampling, ICP-OES
