As a hydrologist with the U.S. Geological Survey, I study how river water quality changes over time and explore the major drivers of these changes. I develop and apply various techniques for characterizing surface water quality trends at regional and national scales. Recently, I became the Harmful Algal Blooms team lead for a project charged with developing nationally scalable proxy approaches.
