Biography

I am a hydrologist in the Augusta office of the New England Water Science Center. I was first hired as a student hydrologic technician in the Maine Water Science Center in 2009. Early work included field trips for hydrologic data collection, miscellaneous GIS tasks, and some data analysis. I was hired full-time as a civil engineer following graduation from the University of Pittsburgh in 2011. Since then, I have been converted to a hydrologist and have worked on statistics and trends for a local and regional hydrologic climate response network, database creation and management, hydrologic records, hydraulic modeling, map production, and geospatial analysis. Most recently, I have worked in many different roles on flood risk assessments and studies all over New England.
