I am a first year PhD student in the Deep Time Ecology research group at the University of Cambridge, UK, and British Antarctic Survey. I am investigating Antarctic benthic ecology using spatial analyses and Bayesian network inference, using both modern and Cenozoic data. I am co-supervised by Dr. Emily Mitchell, Professor Andrea Manica, Dr. Huw Griffiths, and Dr. Rowan Whittle.

I hold a Masters in Computational Paleobiology from GeoZentrum Nordbayern, University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, Erlangen, Germany. I completed my BS with Distinction in Research (Science of Earth Systems) in May 2018 from Cornell University and the Paleontological Research Institution. Within the Department of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences, I concentrated in Geosciences.
