Boston AWG Fall Hike

A few members of the new Boston Association for Women Geoscientists Chapter braved the rain for a lovely fall hike in Watatic Mountain State Wildlife Area. We warmed up afterwides with some hot mulled cider and apple cider donuts at Calrlson Orchard!

SCEC Annual Meeting 2023

In September, I attended the Southern California Earthquake Center annual meeting in Palm Springs with most of our Harvard Strucutral Geology group! The poster I presented is publicly available to view here

 We took a quick trip to Joshua Tree National Park while we were there, and thankfully it rained for us - keeping it nice and cool!

Boston Triathlon!

When I'm not doing research, I love to swim, cycle, and run. I competed in the Boston Olympic Triathlon in August 2023. It was a lot of fun!

Fieldwork in Escalante, Utah, May 2023

I joined a group of close colleagues and researchers from the University of Arizona, Northwestern University, University of Wisconsin-Madison, Linneaus University, and University of Saskatchewan. We were conducting fieldwork for our SMRFS project (Subsurface Microbe-Rock-Fluid Systems). In this photo, Pete Reiners (UArizona) is pointing out some interesting iron oxide deposits and we are speculating how and when they were formed. 

Visit to Utah State University, May 2023

I visited my colleague Alexis Ault at Utah State University, where I also gave a seminar talk. We had lots of great conversations about fluid-rock interactions and clay formation along active fault zones in Southern California! I also got to enjoy some trail running in the beautiful scenery. 

Visit to Edinburgh in March 2023

I visited my alma mata, the University of Edinburgh, when I was in the UK visiting my family. I gave a seminar talk and met with my old supervisor, Florian Fusseis. 

Fieldwork in S. California, January 2023

My postdoc kicked off with a trip to Southern California to conduct fieldwork! I sampled the Hidden Springs Fault, which is an active fault zone that is part of the southern San Andreas fault system. We also observed the intense deformation around the San Andreas fault.
