I'm a PhD candidate from the School of Oceanography at the University of Washington. My research looks at how chemicals preserved in the shells of foraminifera, a type of marine zooplankton, can tell us about the climate of the past. I study this because I care about future climate change, and learning how Earth's climate changed in the past is a valuable tool that lets us predict how its climate will change in the future.

The west's dramatic coastlines have masked rising tides, but that doesnโ€™t mean the future is dry

Massive helps scientists share their stories

Our members get featured by major publications, invited onto radio programs, and become better scientists. That's because we take a different approach to teaching science communication.
