Research Specialist, Sierra Nevada Research Institute, University of California, Merced
As Field Manager the Southern Sierra Critical Zone Observatory, I am working to manage and maintain instrumentation and data collection capabilities throughout the Sierra. I am fascinated by environmental systems and how humans impact and interact with their environments. I believe that accurate data collection is imperative to informing management decisions. With a background heavy in field work and experience working in remote areas with federal and state agencies, I emphasize safety and accurate data collection.
