Savannah joined the Russell lab in the fall of 2016. Prior to joining the group, Savannah received her bachelor's degree in Biochemistry (2016) from California State University, Fullerton. Savannah currently works on quantifying the complexities of marine aerosol organic composition using a suite of instrumentation including FTIR and STXM-NEXAFS. She received the NSF-GRFP in 2018 and has spent much of that time linking the properties of the sea surface microlayer and both ambient and generated aerosol particles. With this work, Savannah hopes to both: 1.) Use diverse instrumentation to piece apart the complexities of the exchange of organic material from the ocean to the atmosphere and 2.) use field data of organic aerosol composition to constrain climate models to better represent the marine system. In her not so ample free time, Savannah loves to rock climb, knit, garden, and hike with her husband and 2 dogs, Olive and Josiah.
