Erin is now working as a science teacher in Mariposa! Best of luck to you, Erin! I am interested in how humans interact with and impact their environment, and how those interactions alter ecosystem health, stability and resilience. In 2012, I completed my Master's of Science at UC Merced, where I researched the magnitude and variability of sediment transport from small catchments in the Kings River Experimental Watershed, part of which constitutes the main site of the SSCZO. As the Field Manager with the Southern Sierra CZO, I split my time between the field and office. In the field, I manage instruments, collect and monitor data streams, and assist researchers in all weather. I also facilitate field work, permitting, research applications and collaborations. I have the pleasure of working with all of our research groups on projects including geology, geophysics, soil science, ecohydrology, microbial ecology, and snow hydrology
