DGE Researcher Profile
I am a graduate student in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Stanford University and a member of Dr. Anna Michalak's research group at the Carnegie Institution for Science's Department of Global Ecology. I am also involved in the Stanford student chapter of the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE).My research focuses on improving the current understanding of both the natural and anthropogenic components of the carbon cycle using data driven statistical methods. In the past I have worked on a project that developed a conceptual design for an atmospheric CO2 monitoring network to better constrain CO2 exchange across North America. Currently, my research explores the use of inverse modeling approaches to provide an atmospheric data constraint on both natural and fossil fuel based CO2 fluxes.
