My research interests are focused on further researching and studying water management. Water resource management is the unifying factor that creates a balance between water available, people, people’s needs and the environment. Within the realm of water resource science and management, I am extremely interested in expanding my disciplinary knowledge to better understanding how environmental changes have and will continue to directly affect the quantity and quality of our water resources. By participating in this IGERT program, I am also going to gain the interdisciplinary adequacy to understand how the changes in water quality and quantity will in turn how those changes affect communities. In summary, I am interested in researching how climate change is affecting precipitation regimes and how people directly interact with these changes.
