As a geologist at the Survey, I do fieldwork, data management, and geographic information system (GIS) work for a variety of projects and research topics. I balance time between the field and the office.
For my current projects, I
- fly the Survey’s drone to collect aerial and thermal images,
- photograph and describe sediment core,
- use GIS to create maps, and
- sample, measure, and monitor springs.
I really enjoy the opportunity to work outside, meet people throughout the state, and do science that applies to groundwater issues.
My current projects can be explored through this story map:
