Research Interests

The physical science portion of my research is focused on understanding the baseflow recession properties of high-class trout streams in Wisconsin’s Driftless Area and the impacts that climate change will have on the hydrology of these streams.

The social science portion of my research will include interviewing decision-makers at the local and county level to help gain a better understanding of how environmental management decisions are made. I am particularly interested in the role that science plays in these decisions and how decision-makers think about and plan for climate change impacts.

Zachery now serves as Editor for Cyclocross Magazine, an Online and Print Cycling Publication.
