Research Interests

I’m excited about empirically based, theoretically grounded, and societally attuned science! My research goals are to assess climate change impacts on water availability, to measure and model ecohydrologic cold region processes across scales, and to develop approaches in collaboration with diverse stakeholder groups to inform sustainable adaptation and decision strategies.


I am committed to building a diverse research community, where everyone feels they belong, and we collectively benefit from our differences. I am motivated by the excitement of scientific discovery and the thrill of collaborative research. Efforts to be more inclusive will improve our knowledge and better serve the decisions of individuals and organizations. I believe these efforts can foster better outcomes for society and our environment.
