We are developing CyanoSleuth, a citizen science monitoring kit to help people who live on and swim in the lake know when blooms might pop up and if it's safe to swim.

Environmental Scientist

Hi! I'm as "water nerdy" as they come. I have a multi-disciplinary background in biology, engineering and environmental science. I'm passionate about protecting our water sources and raising awareness about the water-energy-(food-economy) nexus. I wear a few hats these days - completing my PhD on microbial and toxicity risks to drinking water, teaching environmental science, dabbling in policy writing, and working in engineering consulting to help utilities address water quality concerns. I've helped local drinking water treatment plants prepare for the risk of algae blooms in their source waters and been involved in the development of drinking water guidelines. I'm also trained in facilitation techniques and excited to explore creative and user-friendly solutions with the right team!
