As a PhD student in the Geology Program within the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences at Oregon State University (GO Beaves!), my research focuses on increasing groundwater supply through artificial conveyances, especially by way of Aquifer Storage and Recovery. I hold a bachelors degree in geology from the University of Oregon (GO Ducks!), and I am currently working on a project, in cooperation with Washington State Department of Ecology and my advisor Dr. Michael Campana (Aquadoc), to assess the suitability of Aquifer Storage and Recovery throughout Washington's 62 Water Resource Inventory Areas.
