I am an Assistant Professor in Environmental Engineering at Central Michigan University. I have BS degrees in Ecological Engineering and Ecology from Purdue University and a MS and PhD in Civil & Environmental Engineering from Colorado State University. I am interested in improving management of our water resources, especially in heavily impacted urban areas. I hope my research and teaching can help make real-world changes to improve water quality, reduce flood risk, and improve the ecological health of our waterways. I enjoy canoeing, hiking, running, and woodworking, especially with my wife and two sons.
