Originally born and raised in South Texas, I'm currently pursing a MS in Geology here in Tempe. I've been given the opportunity to work as a graduate research assistant in the Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (SIMS) lab under Dr. Richard Hervig. Working in this lab allows me to explore my interests in geochemistry while also exposing me to other applications for SIMS. I'm excited to be at ASU and explore the Earth even more!
