I am a Math and Physics double major at St Olaf College in Minnesota. I am looking for a summer internship that allows me to combine my love of the natural world with my love of math and science. I have strong intra-personal and leadership skills from many years working as a teacher and instructor at summer schools, theater programs, and skiing programs. I have outdoor skills from 15+ years of wilderness expeditions during summers in Alaska and Canada and a semester studying environmental science and outdoor leadership at the High Mountain Institute in Colorado.
I worked under Professor Alden Adolph at St Olaf College researching temperature processes over the Greenland icesheet. My work involved data extraction, extensive use of MatLab and JMP for data analysis and visualization, scientific writing for posters and papers, 3D modeling, electronic work building and coding a temperature control system for our lab, and effective team collaboration. I also prepared and presented this work at a number of conferences, including the American Geophysical Union 2018 Fall Meeting. I began working on this project Summer 2018 through the CURI program and have continued the research through the Thomas Endowment Fund.
