Earth scientist and science writer
I'm Becca, a Ph.D. candidate in biogeochemistry at the University of Michigan. I'm curious about how Earth's life, landscapes, and atmosphere have changed over billions of years, and how the continents and oceans are connected. I use soils (fossilized and modern) from all over the world to study these processes.
I'm also passionate about the intersection of science communication, race and gender, and feminism in the context of academia. Through my science writing, I aim not only to share cool research with a broad audience, but also to make science more welcoming and accessible to everyone - and to cover the ways we're falling short and need to do better.
