Background

I was born in Vilnius, Lithuania. I obtained my BS in Chemistry at Jacobs University (Bremen, Germany) in 2011. I obtained my MS and PhD in Earth Sciences at the University of Southern California (Los Angeles, USA) in 2014 and 2017, respectively, where I worked with Doug Hammond and Josh West on Ge and Si isotope systematics in continental and marine low-temperature environments. I am currently at the University of Cambridge (Cambridge, UK), working with Ed Tipper and Mike Bickle on weathering and carbon fluxes of large rivers. I am also interested in the interface between science and public policy.
