Natalie is interested in how microbial organisms affect sediment transport processes, and how these interactions are preserved in the rock record. Natalie would like to study these processes via lab, field, and remote sensing analysis. In addition to scientific research, Natalie is also an active member of the arts community in Flagstaff, and enjoys teaching and presenting science to her local community in classrooms and at events such as the Flagstaff Festival of Science.
