I am an alumna of the City University of New York where I earned a BA in Environmental Earth Science from Hunter College and a PhD in Earth and Environmental Sciences from The Graduate Center. My undergraduate research focused on geochemistry, geology, and soil chemistry. The bulk of my PhD work was centered on a numerical model of geologic processes within ancient 4 billion year old asteroids using Fortran90 in conjunction with MATLAB. I have 2 years of experience mentoring and tutoring college juniors and seniors. I have also led tours of the American Museum of Natural History that covered topics like gems and minerals, the geology of Manhattan's skyscrapers, and the history of the Solar System. Given my background, I am most effective at tutoring college to graduate level environmental science, geology, and MATLAB programming. I believe that education should be accessible to all who seek it and I endeavor to nurture curiosity about the natural world.

On my spare time I like to go hiking in forests, play tennis, and play video games (I'm a Zelda fanatic). I also love to learn about other cultures and languages by traveling abroad. My favorite country to visit is the land of a thousand lakes: Finland!
