I graduated from Tulane University in 2018 with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering. Before starting my Master's in Hydrogeology, I worked in Washington, D.C. as a science policy analyst. At the University of Nevada, Reno I work with Dr. Elizabeth Koebele studying how social and political factors affect the transition of urban water systems toward sustainability. I am also interested in understanding the factors influencing the adoption of innovative urban water management strategies. If not working to solve water management challenges, I am trail running somewhere in the mountains.
