I’m fascinated by water resource management in the face of scarcity, climate change, and increasing demands for freshwater. To that end, I study dam reoperation, environmental flows, and scientifically-informed comprise in California water management. I aim to center environmental justice and cross-disciplinary methods in my research while involving diverse collaborators in the planning, practice, and dissemination of my science.
I am also a water loss control specialist, and I support municipal water efficiency efforts in California, Wisconsin, Texas, and Washington. I have a degree in geology from Macalester College, and I spend my free time running long distances and engaging in racial justice projects.
