Lauren Koenig

Lauren Koenig, Ph.D., is a data scientist and ecologist in the USGS Water Resources Mission Area. 

I am excited about working collaboratively to translate large, complex datasets into better understanding of freshwater ecosystems and water resources. As a data scientist in the Analysis and Prediction Branch of the Water Resources Mission Area, I develop reproducible workflows that combine diverse observational datasets and modeling approaches to predict water quality in streams and rivers. Prior to joining USGS, I earned my Ph.D. from the University of New Hampshire, where I studied how water, energy, and nutrients move and cycle within river networks.
