I am a Research Hydrologist in the USGS Colorado Water Science Center and Affiliate Faculty member of the Department of Geosciences at Colorado State University.
I investigate snow and hydrological processes in mountainous environments of the United States that are critically important for understanding water resources and availability for the nation. My current research uses a combination of field-based measurements, remote sensing observations, and physically based modeling over a range of spatial scales to better understand the spatial and temporal variability of snow water resources and how changes in snow processes are linked with changes to water availability, water budgets, and water quality. I received my PhD in Watershed Science from Colorado State University in 2016 and studied the importance of snow sublimation to seasonal snowpack variability. A list of my Science and Products are provided below and can also be viewed on my Google Scholar page.
