I am a full-time hydrogeologist at the Illinois State Water Survey and a first-year PhD student in Geology. My research interests are broadly focused on applied solutions to water supply problems in both urban and agricultural settings, including mechanisms for well degradation in deep basin aquifers, road salt's impact in urbanized areas, understanding uncertainty's role in driving water supply decisions, and participatory modeling as a framework for stakeholder engagement.
