I am a water resources engineer interested in the intersection of urban systems and ecohydrology. More specifically, my research centers around how individuals and local organizations can optimally adopt hydrological best management practices in residential areas. I use high-performance modeling, high-throughput modeling, and field work to answer my research questions.
I am currently a Ph.D. candidate in Water Resources Engineering at University of Wisconsin-Madison, working with Dr. Steve Loheide in the Hydroecology Group. I received my B.S. in Civil Engineering at Bucknell University in 2012, where I had amazing opportunities to do research toward detecting pthalates in drinking water and creating a restoration plan for a degraded stream on campus.
Beyond research, I feel strongly about the importance of teaching and mentoring tomorrow's scientists and engineers. I believe it is essential that scientists and engineers effectively communicate - through multiple media - to the public. And I strive to be a lifelong learner in all that I do - from picking up new coding languages to playing the flute.
