In 2015 I graduated from the University of Colorado Boulder with a Bachelor of Arts in Geography. Since then, I have been working in the travel industry specializing in luxury travel to Asia and the Pacific. I have been enrolled in the professional certificate program for earth data analytics which I will complete in the spring. My research interests are in earth sciences, but my focus this semester is on volcanology and the threats and risks it has towards expanding populations and communities. My goal is to emerge from the certificate program with a new career path in data analytics focusing on earth sciences and the varying phenomena associated with climate change.
