Biography, Education and Training

Associate of Science from Seattle Central College, 2016.

Bachelor of Science from the University of Washington, 2018.


Graduate student in the Earth and Planetary Science Department, studying mineral physics.


Research interests: Stability/metastability and rheology of amphiboles (hydrated inosilicate minerals) in the deep crust and upper mantle regions of subduction zones, and their contribution to water cycling.


Rent Burden: 75% (what’s this?)


Graduate students at UC Santa Cruz face severe rent burden, often spending over 50% of our income on housing. We are precarious, but we are indispensable.


I stand in solidarity with the COLA campaign.
