Degree program: PhD
I get to do a lot of awesome fieldwork. From chain-sawing thousand-year-old wood in hip-deep mud, to hummuck-hopping in swamps along the coasts of New England, each field site is different and has a story! One of my favorite field stories is when I took a group of brave volunteers out on the coldest day of the year in January 2015 to core trees in a swamp that was deemed ‘impenetrable.' We snowshoed through huge snowdrifts for two miles before getting to the trees only to find that they had frozen solid! We cored a few “treesicles” but eventually had to go get warm and try again in the summer!
