I’m a recent graduate from the Louisiana State University (LSU) geology program, and I've always had a love for research, the outdoors and photography. My research projects have spanned across multiple, diverse fields including planetary science, sedimentology and surface process, and metamorphic geochemistry . I've enjoyed representing LSU and presenting my work at multiple conferences around the country.
When people ask me where I’m from I simply tell them I’m not from anywhere, but I was born in Lafayette, Louisiana. When I was 3 years old my family moved overseas for 15 years. I became a global nomad, living in multiple countries around the world including Balikpapan, Indonesia, Jakarta, Indonesia, Houston, Texas, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the Hague, the Netherlands, and Cairo, Egypt. By living abroad, I was constantly adapting to various cultures and different ways of life. Learning to acclimate through diverse environments has helped me grow as a student and approach difficulties with an open mind and the determination to overcome challenges.
