I received an MS in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin and a BS in Civil Engineering from Duke University. Both my academic and professional work focus on the synthesis of hydrological modeling and geospatial analysis tools, with applications ranging from flood prediction and stormwater management to habitat restoration. Working to improve the management of water and other natural resources throughout California, I spent ten years as a scientific and technical consultant to non-profit organizations and public agencies, serving as associate director (of GreenInfo Network) for seven of those years. My current doctoral research explores interactions between climate and land-use changes in semi-arid mountain watersheds, with the ultimate goal of improving impact assessment on downstream water supply systems.
