I am the center lead for the NASA DEVELOP National Program at Ames Research Center. DEVELOP is a capacity building program that is funded by NASA's Applied Sciences Division, where participants use NASA EOS for innovative short-term environmental research projects. We partner with state, federal, and non-governmental agencies to provide our research results to end-users to assist in management activities.
I have a B.S. in Geology from the College of Charleston, a M.S. in Geosciences from San Francisco State, and I am currently pursuing my PhD in Environmental Studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
Research interests include water resource management, the effects of climate variability and change on regional water systems, and remote sensing applications of the terrestrial water cycle.
