My current research is to develop an ecohydrologic model for investigating the impact of climate change and forest management on dissolved organic carbon processes in the streams for New York City water supply watersheds. I have utilized various data sources to parameterize the ecohydrologic model (RHESSys), and improve the model predictions. I love reading scientific journals and books as well as literature. As well, I love outdoor activities, including surfing, snowboarding and biking.

My research explores the interactions between forests, climate, and streamflow using physically-based process models.

I run and hike through as many forests as possible with my husband and two dogs when away from the computer.

Example of Published Work: “Soil storage influences climate-evapotranspiration interactions in three western United States catchments.” Submitted to HESS, 2015.

I am primarily interested in land cover disturbance impacts on downstream water, in particular implications for short-term flood risk and long-term water supply planning. I conduct detailed catchment-scale modeling using RHESSys to identify key physical controls, and look for landscape-scale response patterns at the broader continental scale using the WRF-Hydro modeling system.

During my time in the Tague lab I cultivated a love of home-brewing (Trickle-Down Triple! Macro Pore-ter!) and baking. I also enjoy hiking in the beautiful Boulder foothills with my canine charge and former lab mascot, Woody.
