I am a watershed hydrologist that is interested in incorporation of human decision-making into landscape to regional scale models. My previous research has included investigations into how landscape structure influences vegetation patterns and biogeochemical cycles, and using remote sensing data to scale field observations. I am currently working on projects that incorporate water resources management and land use decision making into models of the Treasure Valley, ID. Combining various data sources and modeling expertise, we seek to use our interdisciplinary research to contribute to sustainable resource management. I am very interested in science outreach and education and am excited to participate in activities that promote the use of science in decision making.
Increasing diversity, equity and inclusivity in geosciences is critical to solving the complex environmental challenges society is facing. I am continually gaining a deeper understanding of the systemic nature of the lack of diversity in our fields and am working with students and faculty to identify ways to support DEI at Boise State, any suggestions or resources are always welcome.
As noted in my Student and Early Career Scientist Profile on the AGU tumbler page, I am an avid river runner, and general outdoor enthusiast. When I'm not at my desk I'm likely to be found outdoors adventuring!
