I have been working with Dr. Rosemary Sherriff for three years. I was a teaching assistant for Physical Geography while working on my B.A. in Geography, in addition to being a lab technician and research assistant in the Dendroecology Lab. My work includes dendrochronology, climate analysis and database management.
