For my Doctoral dissertation, I worked on the creation of an integrated water model for a basin in Northwest Mexico, specifically in the states of Sonora and Chihuahua. The purpose of this simulation-optimization water model was to direct water management practices towards sustainability by creating a modeling tool that reflected the current institutional policies in Mexico related to water resources.
After I finished my Ph.D., I worked as a Post-Doctoral Research Associate at the City University of New York (CUNY) Environmental Cross Roads Initiative in New York City. NYC is both an amazing and vibrant place. After that incredible opportunity, I moved back to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Before I started my position at LSSU, I worked as both, an adjunct assistant professor and an Environmental Engineer in the private sector.
In 2012, I started my position at LSSU at the School of Physical Sciences, teaching a variety of courses in Geology and Environmental Sciences. LSSU is located in Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan, which is one of the oldest city in the US and it is home to the Soo Locks.
