My research is focused on applying an interdisciplinary approach to large-scale watershed management, hazards management, and environmental injustice. I use social, biological, and geophysical analysis tools to understand the impacts of climate and land-use change drinking water quality, stormwater & runoff erosion, and pollutant movement & quantification. Projects have focused on understanding how disenfranchised populations disproportionately experience environmental disasters, such as flooding and post-wildfire drinking water contamination. I use a tangential empirical & software engineering approach to apply field data to machine learning/GIS models.
Other research interests include the application of biochemical metabolites and other analytical chemistry tools to understanding the mechanisms in which climate-driven pollutants affect biodiversity and human health. Future work will focus on developing participatory methods for municipalities to use to project human health and biodiversity in a changing climate.
