Hello, I'm Claire!
I am a hydrologist and civil engineer. I conduct interdisciplinary research on river sediment, water resources management, and capacity building. I aim to improve the connection between academic research and societal application by collaborating with stakeholders and producing "user-ready" research. I enjoy conducting research in watersheds all over the world!
I am currently a Postdoctoral Associate in the Tropical Rivers Lab of Florida International University. Along an interdisciplinary team of scientists, I am working on a project on freshwater ecosystem conservation in the Amazon River Basin.
I completed my PhD in civil and environmental engineering from the University of Washington in August 2020. I am a licensed Professional Engineer and previously worked as a consulting environmental engineer at CH2M (now Jacobs). I hold a Bachelor of Science in civil and environmental engineering from the University of California, Berkeley (UCB). I was born and raised in Madera, the heart of California.
