PhD Statistics, Colorado School of Mines, in progress
M.S. Statistics, Colorado School of Mines, 2021
B.S. Engineering Physics, Colorado School of Mines, 2019
I am a PhD student in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Statistics at the Colorado School of Mines. My research is applied in nature and focuses on methane emissions from the oil and gas sector. Some of my projects include open-source methods for methane emission detection, localization, and quantification using continuous point sensors (preprint coming soon!), spatial models for gridded, satellite-based methane data products, and methods for accurate emissions accounting across oil and gas supply chains using a range of measurement technologies.
I am a student researcher for the Payne Institute for Public Policy, a data-focused research institute associated with the School of Mines, where I work on the Responsible Gas Initiative. I am also a Core Member of the Methane Emissions Technology Alliance (META), a Stanford-led group of researchers and practitioners focused on detection and mitigation of methane emissions.
I have previously collaborated with atmospheric scientists at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) on interpretable models for explaining fire season intensity and with physicists studying ELVES.
I am originally from Seattle, WA, where I liked to hike and sail. I now live in Boulder, CO, where I have picked up cycling and Nordic skiing. When I am not outside or working, I like to read and play board games.
