I received a B.S. in Cognitive Science and had a specialization in Computing from UCLA in 2006. In 2007, I served as a laboratory manager at UC Irvine. As a graduate student at the University of Chicago, I received the APF/COGDOP Graduate Student Research Scholarship in Psychology and the APA Dissertation Research Award. After obtaining my PhD in Cognitive Psychology with a minor in Computational Neuroscience in 2011, I joined the Park Aging Mind Laboratory as a postdoctoral researcher. In 2015 I was hired as an Assistant Professor in the Psychology Department at The University of Alabama.
I am an Assistant Professor at Florida International University where I study climate and disturbance regime effects on ecosystem structure and function. I am interested in understanding how changes in climate, land use, forest age, and disturbance will affect ecosystem productivity and the role of natural systems in the global carbon cycle. I use remotesensing, eddy covariance, and plot level work to measure and model changes in C dynamics in natural ecosystems.
