Ph.D, Environmental Sciences in Hydrology , University of Idaho , 2016
My research advances process understanding through integration of field-based observations, meta-analyses, and physically-based modeling. My current questions explore how ecohydrologic mechanisms control regolith development and architecture across daily to millennial timescales, and how this architecture then influences streamflow generation under a changing climate.
