I work in the Rich Lab at the University of Arizona, focused on the Critical Zone Observatory project for the Catalina-Jemez site. I just started an Accelerated Masters Program in the SWES department and am helping to collect soil samples, measure microbial biomass, characterize the community composition, and further analyze the data collected to see how microbial communities react to pulse events. I have previously worked in the EEB department at the University of Arizona in the Enquist lab, aiding a Ph.D. candidate with her thesis work looking at evolution of trees on a small time scale in Canada and completing a small project on the leaf economic spectrum.
