I research isotope hydrology, soil evaporation and vegetation water use. As an interdisciplinary researcher and friend of wild animals like the wolverine, I am especially interested in mountain hydrology that affects the ecosystem and water resources. At the Southern Sierra Critical Zone Observatory, I am currently studying vegetation water sources in order to understand evapotranspiration as a flux from the sub-surface to the atmosphere. I joined the Southern Sierra CZO from Lake Tahoe where I was an advocate for the environment and the Desert Research Institute in Las Vegas, where I earned a Master of Science degree in Water Resources Management.
