Hi! I'm a junior from the Philly suburbs, and I'm studying Earth Science with a concentration in Geology. So far, one of my favorite classes has been Petrology, where I learned about how minerals form rocks and how to identify minerals in thin sections under a microscope. I also enjoyed taking Ornithology, a class under the Masters of Environmental Studies program. The class went on field trips, and I learned how bird life, behavior, and conservation is interconnected with the environments they inhabit. Outside of class, I’m doing research in Dr. Goldsby’s lab, and you can frequently find me doing homework in the Hayden Hall lobby. Feel free to ask me about my favorite green spaces in and around Philly!
