Hydrology Geomorphology Water Policy GIS Analysis Technical Writing Field Work 


I am a fluvial geomorphologist who is primarily interested in the interaction between humans and river systems, focusing on decadal to century long time scales. My skills include hydrology, fluvial geomorphology, GIS analysis, surveying, sedimentology and riparian ecology. Questions in water resources are often interdisciplinary, and I use my knowledge from multiple disciplines to produce the most effective solution for your questions.

I currently work as a consultant providing technical writing, spatial analysis and hydrologic modeling. Prior to moving to Salt Lake City, I completed an M.S. in Watershed Sciences at Utah State University. Prior to graduate school, I worked as part of a team researching wetland restoration in the National Research Program at the US Geological Survey in Reston, VA. I received a B.A. in Geology from Carleton College.
