I am a PhD student in Water Resources at University of Idaho studying Chinook salmon migration. In a nutshell, I track salmon movements using isotopes deposited in their ear bones (otoliths). Previously I have been an itinerant scientist, helping to design next-gen coronary stents for a humongous corporation, preceded by stints in plastics bioengineering, analytical chemistry, and fisheries ecology. Outside of work I enjoy time with my 9 year old son and my fiancé. Playing acoustic guitar, playing basketball, working in coffee shops and anything that gets me outside and away from working inside for too long.
