I am a postdoctoral associate in the Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center (ESSIC) at the University of Maryland. I recently earned my PhD in Civil & Environmental Engineering from Princeton University, where I worked under the supervision of Dr. Kelly Caylor, currently Professor of Ecohydrology and Director of the Earth Resources Institute at the University of California – Santa Barbara. My dissertation research at Princeton combined themes from ecohydrology, catchment hydrology, and social-ecological systems to better understand food production and food insecurity in irrigated agricultural systems.
I also have experience as an Adjunct Professor of Environmental Studies at St. Mary’s College of Maryland where I taught courses on the Dynamics of Coupled Human and Natural Systems and Field Methods in Hydrology during Spring and Summer 2019, respectively. Please feel free to contact me with professional opportunities or to discuss research and/or teaching.
