Research Specialist, Biosphere 2, University of Arizona

My work at Biosphere 2 is focused on the installation and maintenance of all of the sensors and sampling systems installed in the LEO hillslopes. I enjoy being a part of this interdisciplinary science team at Biosphere 2 and taking part in the state of the art science happening at LEO. I also work as the Field Manager for the Catalina-Jemez Critical Zone Observatory in the Santa Catalina Mountains outside of Tucson. Working across both of the LEO and CZO projects allows me to learn and conduct research in both natural and controlled environments.
