Profile:

Currently, I am working with scientists at CIGLR and NOAA GLERL to develop a spatially-explicit biophysical model of Lake Erie with the purpose of implementing it as a hypoxia early warning system for water utility managers. In the past, I have worked on several CIGLR modeling initiatives in different capacities including my thesis in which I worked with CIGLR and NOAA GLERL to develop a three-dimensional model that evaluates Lake Michigan’s suitability for invasive Bighead and Silver Carp.
