What key words best describe your hope for the future?

Water resources management, strategic environmental planning, land use-water nexus, energy-water nexus, Western US

Describe what are you working on in the field of climate change, environmental protection, environmental justice or social impact.

I am a first year Master of Environmental Science and Management candidate at the UCSB Bren School. I am involved with the Sustainable Water Markets program and specializing in economics and politics of the environment with a focus in strategic communication and media. I am most interested in studying market and political mechanisms for integrated and innovative water resources management.

My Master's project group is studying the potential for transferring water rights from decommissioned coal power plants for instream flows in the west.

How might other W&E conference attendees be able to support your work, goals or objectives?

In gearing up for my group project, it would be useful to connect with other attendees who have knowledge of or experience with water rights and markets, coal plant operations and management, or impact investing. We would be interested in making these connections for informal project support, or in a more formal role as potential external advisors.

What are you able and willing to contribute to other attendees at the conference to support their work, goals or objectives?

I am able to contribute my background knowledge of hydrology and California water policy, as well as explore the land use-water and energy-water nexus to develop innovative natural resources management strategies in the west. I am happy to share my knowledge and learn much more from others.
