Photo Description


I grew up in Rochester, Minnesota and earned my BS degree in Environmental Science at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota.  As an undergrad I was part of a shallow lake ecology research lab and specifically looked at environmental estrogens expressed in male fathead minnows. My M.S. research has shifted me from the land of lakes to one of the hottest places on the continent- the Sonoran Desert.  I am currently looking at what major factors play the largest role in determining animal water usage in this extreme system.
