I am a PhD student in the Conroy Paleoclimatology and Climate lab. My research investigates the relationship between the El Niño Southern Oscillation and the tropical Pacific mean state. I also examine past climatic changes over the last millennium using total lipid extracts in lake sediments from shallow lakes on Kiritimati (Christmas Island). I am interested in exploring how changes in past climates can correlate to present day climate change. My past studies investigated the effects of road salt on freshwater lake chemistry and dynamics.
