Interned at Sandia National Laboratories in the summer of 2017. Resident Advi Awards & Distinctions: Undergraduate Research Scholar, University Scholar, 4 year recipient of the SEG/Anadarko Scholarship Experience with: Internships, Presentations I am a senior geophysics major pursuing minors in mathematics and geology originally from Clay, New York. I am a University Scholar, a member of the Society of Exploration Geophysicists, a former Sophomore Advisor within the honors dorms, a former Junior Advisor in HHCSL, and a current Resident Advisor in the honors dorms. I plan to pursue a Ph.D. in geophysics and specialize in electromagnetic and near-surface geophysics. Stereotypically, I do own a large rock collection, and when I am not studying or doing field work I love listening to classic rock and reading any books I can get my hands on. I joined Dr. Mark Everett’s research team in the fall of 2014. I have been involved in several projects including at Camptown Cemetery in my freshman year and at the meteorite crater in Odessa, Texas in my sophomore year. At Camptown, a cemetery in Brenham, Texas, we used near-surface geophysical methods (Ground penetrating radar (GPR), EM profiler) to look for the remains of African American Civil War soldiers whose gravestones were overturned. The project in Odessa involved the use of geophysical methods to image the structure of a meteorite crater with the purpose of predicting the initial crater size of the impact before weathering and deposition of overlying sediments. My current research, which I have been working on since early 2016, focuses on the development of representative geological models corresponding to the major theories on the origin of Upheaval Dome. This involves using controlled source electromagnetic (CSEM) theory to design a forward model for use in predicting possible geologic scenarios of Upheaval Dome. One of my biggest passions is the undergraduate research that I do and I firmly believe that the best way to find your research project is to ask yourself what you love to do! The more passionate you are, the more fun you will have in your career, and the further you will go!
