I am a first-year Masters student in SNRE, studying energy policy and sustainable systems. I am a native Texan and graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 2011 with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and a minor in French. While at UT Austin, I was a member of the Webber Energy Group and conducted research on the environmental impacts and tradeoffs of travel and telecommunications. After graduation, I worked for two years as a project manager in the oil & gas industry in Houston, while also working with a small group researching sustainable drilling practices, corporate social responsibility, and internal sustainability within the company.

My Master’s project in SNRE is working with Habitat for Humanity of Michigan to develop a better understanding of energy efficiency in low-income housing and design ways to improve energy consumption in Habitat homes. I also do research related to the non-GHG impacts of shale gas and coal for electricity production with SNRE’s Center for Sustainable Systems. My hobbies include camping, snowboarding, cycling, fitness, and balancing life with grad school.
