I am a Student Assistant within the Hydrogeology Department of the Earth and Environmental Sciences Area at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. I am currently a fourth year undergraduate student at the University of California, Berkeley, studying Environmental Sciences, with a concentration in Biological Sciences, and Molecular Toxicology. My current work at LBNL contributes to the larger ALTEMIS project, under the supervision of Haruko Muramaki Wainwright, investigating the mobility of radionuclide groundwater contamination at DOE nuclear weapon waste sites. We are working to create a widely-applicable library of functions in R and Python, in order to standardize visualizing and analyzing historical time series data, optimizing post-closure monitoring.
My prior research experience has involved marine environmental toxicology laboratory research, ecological field surveying, spatial analysis, environmental health risk assessment, and environmental justice community engagement. I am also currently independently researching correlations among spatial models of air pollution, asthma incidences in children, and community perspectives of environmental justice in the San Francisco Bay Area at UC Berkeley. I am pursuing a research career and will continue my education in environmental toxicology and environmental health sciences, merging my interests in ecology, environmental monitoring, and environmental justice.
