I am the groundwater outreach specialist with the Center for Watershed Science and Education and an Assistant Professor of Groundwater Resources in the College of Natural Resources. My current research uses observed data and hydrological models to investigate climate change impacts on water resources. I am also interested in developing interactive data visualizations to improve science communication.
