2013-2017: Project manager for the National Brackish Groundwater Assessment.
2007-2013: Developed regional water budgets and groundwater-flow models using tools such as MODFLOW, Parameter Estimation (PEST), the Groundwater Management (GWM) package, and Soil Water Balance (SWB) code.
1996-2007: Conducted regional groundwater-quality studies.
1997-2000: Authored the annual state-wide groundwater level change report.
1996-2003: Managed USGS databases. Coordinated with 34 Federal, State, and local agencies to compile groundwater levels from approximately 4,000 observation wells state-wide on a semi-annual basis.
1994-1996: Provided GIS and cartographic support.
