Education
  • Ph.D., Bioengineering, University of Missouri-Columbia, 2018.
Current Role
Quantifying the environmental impacts of biomass removal using field observations and simulation models.
Capabilities
Hydrologic and agroecosystem modeling; examining the effects of climate change on the hydrologic cycle; downscaling and bias-correction of climate models; drought modeling and assessment; life cycle analysis; environmental regulatory compliance.
Career Highlights
  • Research Scientist: Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. Analyzed water quantity and quality datasets and implemented simulation models to ensure the compliance of industrial, municipal and domestic facilities with the Clean Water Act. Evaluated river and lake eutrophication standards on watershed basins using observed data and EPA regulatory models.
  • Graduate Research Assistant: University of Missouri-Columbia. Assessed the impact of climate change on hydrology using a global circulation model coupled with hydrologic model. Also used water quality modeling to determine maximum allowable loading to stream and lakes. Work also involved analyzing hydrologic extremes (drought and flood), and the developing and improving hydrologic models.
