Areas of Interest
I am working on my Ph.D. with Professor Bruce Wilson. I am interested in the use of innovative BMP's in ecological design to improve water quality (namely remove nutrients and prevent erosion) from water resources in agricultural settings. Previous projects I have worked on pertaining to this topic include modeling the effects of different side inlets types on effluent sediment loading and peak flows as well as a field study of the effectiveness of a two-stage ditch design at creating a self-sustaining system that functions more like a natural stream. For my dissertation, I plan to continue my work on improving water quality in agricultural settings with an emphasis on nitrate removal in the two-stage ditch system, using GIS to appropriately place BMPs, and scaling up BMPs, and combinations thereof, from a field scale to a watershed scale.
