Greetings! I am a rising senior at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Geneseo with a major in Geological Sciences and a minor in Mathematics. I spent the previous semester at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand focusing on Geologic field mapping methods and am excited to apply my new skills to REU SLAWR. As a member of Team Stream, we will be studying the sedimentology on Spirit Island to understand both the natural and anthropogenic causes of high rates of erosion recently observed on the Island. I look forward to collaborating with the variety of skills brought by Team Stream, as well as with the Fond du Lac tribe!
