"Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard"
I have an overall interest in sustainable agriculture and finding ways to a more holistic approach to mitigating pollution to water and air quality from agriculture region. Also, to promote more environmentally and public health conscience farming practices.
Graduate Research Topic
My specific research investigates stream restoration impact on floodplain connectivity, hydrology and nitrogen dynamics in agriculture areas.
"The imagination is the golden pathway to everywhere" -Terrance McKenna
I am an outdoor lover with the goal to become an ADK 46er within the next 5 years. To me, nothing beats a full day of skiing or a long weekend camping. I currently work for an environmental consulting firm where my technical writing primarily focuses on ecological risk assessments and Environmental Assessments in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). My field efforts with the company have included benthic tissue sampling, water quality monitoring, as well as surface water and sediment sampling.
For still there are so many things that I have never seen, in every wood, in every spring, there is a different green ((JRR Tolkein))
