Hello! I’m David Valerio and I’m a masters candidate at Rice University where I study marine biogeochemistry.

I am developing a chemical reaction network model of the Earth’s ocean-atmosphere system which predicts the isotopic composition of air and will help us understand the biogeochemical controls on the global carbon cycle. After finishing my degree, I’d like to move into industry to enhance ecosystem antifragility.

Besides doing research, I read books, lift weights, and evangelize for the greatest city in the world, Houston, Texas. I enjoy reading history, biography, science fiction and philosophical novels. I also write newsletter/blog posts when I am so inclined.
