I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Environmental Sciences, Policy, and Management from the University of Minnesota. I am currently enrolled in the Land and Atmospheric Science M.S. program and a Minor in the Water Resources Science program.

My research looks at winter manure best management practices and how they can improve surface water quality through the understanding of nutrient runoff, snowpack and snowmelt processes.
