Currently, I am a Global Environmental Change Fellow at Berkeley Institute for Data Science (BIDS) working at the intersection between invasive species, climate change and wildfire in Californian ecosystems. My project involves developing probabilistic models that work with newly collated datasets and meta-data to work across environmental scales to understand wildfire spread and impact. Recently I started a project to develop probabilistic models for avalanches in Northern California. I am also the Data Science Communications Manager at BIDS. My projects in this role include visual and written science communications (sci-comm) articles, websites, data visualizations, illustrations, and infographics of data intensive projects across the institute.

As an NSF Graduate Research Fellow, I studied the effects of elevated atmospheric carbon dioxide and water availability on plant growth. I then blended this knowledge of plant metabolism with computational biology to build genetically informed mathematical models of plant growth as part of an NSF postdoctoral fellowship at UC Davis. Recently, I co-founded and was the VP of Genomics at Rev Genomics, which uses genomics, statistics, molecular genetics, and tissue culture to create new strains of Cannabis for the legal market. Rev Genomics was funded by Y-Combinator and continues to innovate in the Cannabis biotech space.
