Dr. Laura Moore
Ph.D. student in Dr. Laura Moore’s lab working to understand and model the evolution of barrier islands and dunes over time as sea level rises. I am especially interested in the impacts this evolution will have on humans who live both on the barrier islands and the low-lying coastal regions being protected by them. Coming from a place that is threatened by sea level rise, being able to understand and predict its effects is something that hits close to home. Outside of academics, my interests include playing/watching baseball, making music, cooking, and taking the time to explore new places

Drew Coleman
I was a master’s student under Drew Coleman. My research was focused on the Roosevelt Hot Springs Geothermal System in the Mineral Mountains, Utah. Specifically, I characterized the faults within the system using U-Pb isotope geochemistry. A better understanding of these faults provides a better understanding of the flow of super-heated water in the subsurface, which is used to power geothermal plants.

Dr. Tamlin Pavelsky
I am a doctoral student working with Dr. Tamlin Pavelsky in the Global Hydrology Lab.  My research involves using remote sensing to understands trends in regional lake hydrology with a focus on its relationship to permafrost extent within the arctic. Outside of my academic life, I ride bikes with friends, promote outdoor recreation, try to cook the occasional good meal, and relax with a good book when time allows.
