Short Biography and Research Interests

I am a Postdoctoral Research Scientist at the University of Idaho in the Department of Geography. My research interests are in applied climate science, including issues surrounding water, agriculture, and natural resources in a changing climate. Working under Dr. John Abatzoglou, my current research uses broadly applicable methodology in examining the impacts of climate change to alternative agriculture and water security in the Northwest. I have previously held positions as an Assistant Professor of Geoscience at Salt Lake Community College in Salt Lake City, Utah, and as a GIS and Natural Resources Specialist at Sperry Ridge in Eugene, Oregon. I hold a PhD from the Department of Geography at the University of Idaho in Moscow, Idaho, an MS from the Department of Geoscience at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon, and an AB from the Department of Earth and Environment at Mount Holyoke College in South Hadley, Massachusetts.
