Joined CREST CAChE in Spring 2018
My research focuses on informing long-term water resources management planning alternatives and priorities to restore freshwater flows to the Everglades and the Biscayne Aquifer. My work is inspired by global tele-connectivity and the adverse impacts of drought in Ethiopia. I hope to generate knowledge and better understandings of the fate of freshwater resources in the Everglades, in the face of droughts, increased groundwater withdrawal and seawater intrusion.
