Brief Biographical Sketch:

I am a graduate student in Environmental Engineering, with a focus on hydrology. I enjoy teaching very much, and love to come up with new experiments/demonstrations to help everyone learn and discover just how awesome the environment is! Aside from running experiments, I enjoy hockey, hiking, rowing, and pretty much anything that involves spending time outdoors!
