Environmental Decision Support Systems
My research addresses the potential to protect aquatic ecosystems while maintaining water resource benefits for people in water scarce regions, particularly the American West. Ongoing research includes improving aquatic habitat objectives in water resources systems models, evaluating tradeoffs between human and environmental water uses with uncertainty, and identifying climate adaptations for water systems. Systems modeling, mathematical modeling, and field studies are methods I use to improve understanding of systems and explore promising solutions to problems. My research informs river restoration and water resources decision-making to enhance water sustainability in an uncertain future.
