They, them, theirs


After completing my B.A. in ecology at CU Boulder, I worked in environmental science education in the Southwest US. I am now working towards a Ph.D. in Hydrology under the advisement of Dr. Adam Csank and Dr. Adrian Harpold. I am interested in the influences of climate change and adaptive management on the ecohydrological processes of mountainous and arid watersheds. My current research uses tree rings, remote sensing, and modeling to explore how emerging mega-disturbances are changing snowpacks and water resources in the Mountain West. Outside of academia, I spend my time trail running, volunteering for local food sustainability groups, and making art.
