I am a PhD candidate in the Chemical Oceanography program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Joint Program. My research focus is on the advancement of precision sensors for measuring carbonate system parameters in seawater, including pH, dissolved inorganic carbon, partial pressure of CO2, and total alkalinity. My journey in carbonate system measurements began during my undergraduate studies at Flathead Valley Community College, where I studied coral calcification rates and developed new methods for measuring total alkalinity. I later transferred and received my undergraduate degree in electrical and computer engineering from Cornell University. I am dedicated to promoting open research practices and fostering citizen science initiatives.
