I am a marine geo-scientist focusing on the potential for tsunami-genic underwater landslides on the North Carolina continental slope. Through utilizing Pre-Stack Waveform Inversion (PWI) of seismic data, as well as the analysis of sediment properties, my research focuses on identifying areas of overpressure in the sediments, a defining characteristic of potential slope failure. Prior to my time at OSU, I received my BS in Marine Science from Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, FL, where I minored in applied mathematics. There I participated in GoMRI funded research into the sedimentary effects of the Deepwater Horizons oil spill and other sedimentological research throughout the entire Gulf of Mexico. I have also worked with the Department of Energy, National Energy Technology Laboratories on developing Machine Learning (ML), and Natural Language Processing (NLP) algorithms for gas hydrate and carbon storage processes.
