I received my Masters of Arts in Geography from Appalachian State University in the spring of 2021 with a focus on the physical environment, remote sensing, and environmental modeling. My research interests revolve around high mountain physical environments and how they interact with the changing climate. Specifically, my research aims to create a better understanding of the alpine cryosphere and the climate using primarily remote sensing data and numerical modeling. My thesis topic was creating a new approach to modeling and ranking the hazards associated with glacial lakes in the Khumbu Valley and its surrounding slopes using almost entirely free and globally available data. My near-term research goals are to validate this model in varied tropical and sub-tropical alpine environs.
