ABOUT

Climate change and increasing demands on water resources are changing streams worldwide. The need for sustainable management urgently calls for an increased understanding of mechanistic processes that drive surface flows and the conditions under which management tools and actions are effective. In my research, I seek to understand mechanistic drivers of surface flows, how human interventions impact landscape-scale hydrology, and the limits of conventional management tools. I use a variety of methods in my work from analytical modeling and high-performance computing to laboratory scale modeling. I completed a PhD at UC Berkeley in May 2020 with Professors Sally Thompson and Michael Manga.

WHAT MECHANISMS CONTROL HOW WATER MOVES THROUGH HILLSLOPES AND CATCHMENTS UNDER DIFFERENT SCENARIOS?
