Welcome to my official website!

Did you know that the American government has placed millions of satellite images online available for free download to everyone in the world? I graduated in 2018 with a Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, where I used these satellites every day to study water. Check out this site for some ways how we can use satellites to study water and water pollution in rivers and lakes.

One of my favorite things to do is to make short animated films about my research, the environment, and about human rights issues. Sometimes I make them with kids. I also like to write. Check out all my work here.

Currently, I am working at Rice University as a science communicator, after having served as a STEM ambassador in rural North Carolina, making animations with kids.
