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.
