Research Interests:

I am interested in hydrological prediction, groundwater-surface water interactions, environmental sensing, and the ecohydrology of Carolina Bays. If you’re a student interested in any of these areas, please come by my office to talk.

My dissertation research looked at the functioning of water distribution systems in central Kenya. I have also worked on projects related to agricultural yield forecasting, groundwater mapping, and colloidal transport. Prior to my career in academia, I worked as a project manager for the US Forest Service Office of International Programs and as a Peace Corps volunteer in Burkina Faso.
