I grew up in Berkeley, and recently graduated from UC Santa Cruz with a B.S. in Earth Science and a B.A. in Feminist Studies.  In my Earth Science classes I focused on Planetary Sciences, and my thesis project involved modeling temperatures on Saturn’s moon Titan.  I am currently working at NASA Ames on an energy balance model of the Earth, which I plan to apply to Mars.  I enjoy reading science fiction, playing croquet, hiking, backpacking, kayaking, and playing sports, especially water polo.
