Hello! My name is Paige and I just finished majors in Physical Geography and Climate and Environment Science at UC Santa Barbara. I hope to earn a Ph.D. in Physical Oceanography and spend as much time as possible sailing the oceans for science. (see science page)
Currently, I am living and working in Boulder Colorado. I am a scientific visitor at the National Center for Atmospheric Research, working on the National Security Applications Program. In this program, I am working for the GIS team. We tackle any number of GIS-related issues, ranging from optimization of NCAR’s GIS resources to individual grants in collaboration with universities worldwide. I feel incredibly lucky to be here to say the least!
I am continuing my tutoring practice in Colorado, focusing on math and science. The hours I am able to spend with students every week are just as fun and insightful as they were when I first began a serious tutoring job in my sophomore year of college. (Feel free to reach out if you have any questions about being a tutor or if you are looking for tutoring! I also remotely tutor students over Skype.)
Outside of work and academics, I have too many interests to list! I love swimming, water polo, golfing, camping, bodysurfing, hiking, picnicking, and basically any excuse I can get to go outside. Oh- and I love tap dancing. Now that I am in Colorado, I am tacking snowboarding onto this list. Thankfully, I have a great group of friends crazy enough to join me on my adventures. When I am inside, I am writing or reading. My insane love of planning and organization led to my ETSY store, Fiat Lux Planning, and inspired me to post more about my student habits on this blog.
If all that wasn’t enough, here’s a little more information:
