Short Biography

My research interests primarily center around ground water flow and surface/ground water interactions. I am currently finalizing a ground water modeling study report on the Willamette Basin, Oregon.

I started working at USGS Oregon WRD in 1996 on the Willamette NAQWA, and moved to the USGS Carson City WRD from 1997-1998, where I completed a ground water modeling study on the Fallon and Stillwater areas, Churchill County, Nevada. I have been working as a Hydrologist at the Oregon Water Science Center part-time since returning to Oregon in 1998.

M.S. Hydrogeology, 1999, University of Nevada, Reno

B.A. Geology and English, with honors, 1994, Portland State University
