BIO

I am currently a graduate student in the MS in Climate and Health program with a focus in Marine and Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Miami. I am interested in how extreme heat impacts the health of vulnerable communities and how we can better identify those communities at risk. I am also interested in improving the communication of climate risks to the public. I have a BS in Geography (Meteorology-Climatology) with certificates in Atmospheric Sciences and Geographic Information Science from Arizona State University. In undergrad I researched thermal comfort and heat's interaction with the built environment. I am originally from the suburbs of Pittsburgh, PA, but I am enjoying my adventure of studying climate from one warm city to the next. In my spare time I love being outdoors, staying active, and taking care of my ever-growing plant collection.
