Finding ways to balance the water needs of ecological and human systems
The majority of my research has been focused on sustainably integrating ecological and human needs into water resource management, both from engineering and social science perspectives. My work emphasizes the impacts of river management on aquatic ecosystems and explores new methods for mitigating management effects. For more descriptions of my research topics check out my Projects page.
I earned a PhD in civil engineering from the University of New Mexico in 2014. Before finishing my PhD I earned my bachelor's degree (2005) and master's degree (2006) in civil engineering from Washington State University. I have also worked as a consultant engineer (2006-2010) and am a licensed professional engineer.
