ResearchFall 2023–Present

I am working with Professor Grace Barcheck at Cornell to create and analyze a new catalog of slope failure events on Cascade volcanoes from existing seismic data. In fall 2023, I created classification models to discriminate between surface event and earthquake waveforms. I am currently exploring deep-learning pickers that can identify and classify arrivals in continuous data. The final goal is to apply my model to historic data recorded at the volcano-monitoring stations of the Pacific Northwest Seismic Network. My work in the spring semester of 2024 is funded by the Engineering Learning Initiatives program at Cornell.

Work Experience

Earthscope Undergraduate Research Internship in Seismology (URISE)Summer 2023

I worked with Professor Lindsay Worthington at the University of New Mexico to model seismic velocities offshore of Kodiak Island, Alaska. I developed new methods for reducing noise to successfully combine airgun shots and a nodal array for shore-crossing modeling. Check out my internship blog entries here. I presented our findings at the fall 2023 AGU session in San Francisco.

Pacific Crest FarmSept. 2022–Jan. 2023

I worked as a farmhand harvesting and maintaining the property.

VMware Inc.Summers 2017–2020

I worked as a software engineering intern for VMware as a student in high school. I collaborated with a team of developers building a cloud security product. I wrote production code in Python and Go and worked with tools including Docker and AWS.
