Research interests: Water resources management, stream nutrient concentrations, land use impacts on water quality, drone applications for water quality monitoring

Thesis topic: I am exploring relationships between land use and stream water quality within the Waubesa Wetlands and the Yahara River Watershed in Wisconsin. I hope to provide recommendations for agricultural land management practices and future urban planning.

Why I like this research: I enjoy exploring new field and I love water! The best thing about researching the correlations between land use and water is that I am always learning something new about water quality and land management.
