MS in Geology he/him/his


I completed my BS in Geology at UNR in 2018. I am currently pursuing an MS in Geology with Dr. Scott McCoy.

Research interests

My research interests are primarily surface processes and natural hazards. My MS project focuses on the variation in post-wildfire perturbations to soil hydraulic properties across a climatic gradient. This is part of a larger project that seeks to understand why post-fire debris flow initiation thresholds vary in different climates, and to improve the accuracy of predictive hazard models.
