This quarter, I am finishing up both my B.S. and M.S. in Earth Systems. My undergrad has been in the Oceans, Atmosphere, and Climate track, and I did an honors thesis on long-term biodiversity change in an intertidal community at Hopkins Marine Station. The focus of my coterm is quantitative ecology and evolution, and I am conducting M.S. research on how changes in plant diversity affect the amount of plant material eaten by insects. While an Earth Systems student, I’ve been fortunate to participate in the Wrigley Field Program in Hawai’i, spend two summers at Hopkins, and be a member of the Jasper Ridge community (taking the docent class in 2019 and TA’ing this year). I also enjoyed TA’ing Introduction to GIS this fall. For the past two years (except this quarter), I was one of the wellness liaisons for the Earth Systems coterm. I could not have imagined being able to have such an amazing array of experiences during my time at Stanford, and I am immensely grateful to faculty, staff, and students in the Earth Systems Program for a wonderful five years.
