M.S. Hydrologic Sciences Candidate
I am using the process-based crop model EPIC and agent-based models to simulate hydrology and agriculture in the Treasure Valley of southwest Idaho. By altering climate change projections and management decisions in the models, I will develop a suite of alternative future scenarios for the region that illustrate future agricultural water use and crop yield.
Office: ERB 4th floor, cube 4C
Other Research Interests
Agricultural water use, agent-based modeling, hydrologic modeling, alternative futures analysis, evapotranspiration and soil moisture of agricultural lands, climate change, socio-ecological systems, surface-groundwater interactions.
- Proficient in: Windows operating system, Mac OSX operating system, ArcGIS, NetLogo
- Knowledge of: AutoCAD to create drawings and modify existing projects, MatLab, and programming languages – R, Python, Java
- Hydrologic equipment used: YSI ProDSS and flow cell, RKI Eagle, Water level meter, Groundwater Sampling Bailers, Total Station
- 40 hour HAZWOPER certification (January 2014)
