I study how fundamental physical processes like the flow of water and the transport of sediments and nutrients lead to large-scale patterns in coastal environments. I use statistical techniques to combine models with data from environmental sensors to make predictions about the structure and function of these ecosystems.

I am an ASEE postdoctoral fellow in the Seafloor Sciences branch of the Naval Research Laboratory, where I am building stochastic models of seafloor roughness. I was previously a postdoctoral research associate in the Department of Environmental Sciences at the University of Virginia, where I worked with Matthew Reidenbach to understand how the structure of turbulence in salt marsh creeks controls sediment fluxes between marshes and the shallow coastal bays on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. I graduated in 2018 from Boston University, where I worked with Sergio Fagherazzi on observations of water and sediment fluxes at the Plum Island Ecosystems LTER.
