About Me:

Originally from Massachusetts, my interest in rivers began with hiking and camping in the forests of New England. I was introduced to the discipline of fluvial geomorphology in pursuing my undergraduate degree in Vermont. My interest grew as I studied intermittent streams at an REU in southwestern Virginia and solidified with my undergraduate research on floodplains in the Lake Champlain watershed. After graduating, I worked for the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection in the Watershed Planning Program.

Research Focus:

I will be studying flux attenuation in beads and strings of burned and unburned watersheds in the Front Range.
