Stacie graduated with a B.S. in Environmental Earth Sciences and a B.A. in Studio Art with a concentration in Photography from the University of Notre Dame in May 2018. She is currently a Ph.D. student at the University of Texas at Austin in the Jackson School of Geosciences. Her research interests include synthesizing paleoclimate, paleoecological, and archaeological data for central Texas since the Last Glacial Maximum and Pleistocene vertebrate paleontology in central Texas cave deposits. Stacie is continuing her photography practice while in graduate school through image-making at the field sites she visits. Much of her photographic work is focused on capturing the natural world in a manner that allows the viewer to see the same beauty in the environment as she does.
