Originally from a small mining town in Northern Ontario I’ve been surrounded by geology my whole life. As a child I collected rocks galore, but it was not until my second year of university that I discovered there was far more to geology then mining and this was something I could pursue as a career. I began my undergraduate degree at the University of Ottawa studying biology but quickly realized my interests lay elsewhere and transferred to the earth sciences program. I stumbled upon volcanology by chance when I was offered the opportunity to study hydrothermal alteration at Campi Flegrei and Vulcano in Italy. I spent the final two years of my degree conducting my research and working as a laboratory assistant which lead me to discover my love of research and my desire to continue onto graduate studies.

I am now working towards the completion of my masters degree studying volcanology with Dr. Stix  studying Turrialba volcano in central Costa Rica. Turrialba is a currently active stratovolcano that erupted as recently as recently as 2017.  I will be looking for evidence of hydrothermal sealing that may cause phreatic eruptions.
