I am investigating the potential effects street-side detention basins have on storm water runoff in the Rincon Heights neighborhood. These water harvesting features capture runoff and reduce the amount of impervious surfaces in the neighborhood.


I have been a lab instructor for the MS-GIST program since January 2012. From 2002 to 2004 I was a lab instructor for two GIS classes (RNR 403/503 - Applications of GIS and RNR 419/519 - Cartographic Modeling) for Dr. Phil Guertin.
