My research interests are in applied climatology, specifically focusing on issues surrounding water and perennial agriculture in a changing climate.

I was most recently a postdoc in the Climatology Lab, housed in the Department of Geography at the University of Idaho. I have also 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.
