At DGGS, I am working with the Arctic Strategic Transportation and Resources (ASTAR) team converting analog data to digital format and assisting team members with data management. My work includes using ArcGIS to help build a reference database of sand and gravel resource information of Alaska's North Slope.
I am currently a graduate student and Teaching Assistant at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, pursuing a Master's of Science degree in Geoscience working on ancient depositional reconstructions, sedimentology, and stratigraphy. My research is focused on strengthening our knowledge and understanding of the regional sedimentary depositional systems of Alaska, as it relates to ancient Arctic climate and environmental reconstructions. My thesis work is on sedimentary packages located in the North Slope (Nanushuk Formation), Denali National Park (Cantwell Formation), and Alaska Peninsula (Chignik Formation) regions.
