I am a graduate fellow for the UCR Data Center, where I teach how to apply data science in the environmental sciences. I graduated from UCR in summer of 2022 with an academic focus on environmental and earth sciences, and data science. I am interested in ecology and agriculture, and the application of data science in these two disciplines. I combined these three fields in my bachelor’s thesis in which I looked at the influence of tree inclusion on soil microorganisms across the scale of EU. I enjoy observing nature in all its forms whether its from the academic field or the recreational one such as hiking, climbing, or surfing.
