Hydrogeologist & Professional Wetland Scientist. I oversee scientific studies with respect to hydrologic resources, environmental permitting, regulatory compliance, habitat restoration and risk determinations on projects in the western US, Mexico, Haiti, Vietnam, and India. I oversee all stages of a project from initial due-diligence, procuring necessary permits, plans for project development, field implementation, analytical and numerical models, GIS/remote sensing, project quality assurance and final monitoring and closure requirements with respect to local, state and federal requirements.

Current research/methodology about the true cost of listing, or not, listing a species and habitat restoration is poorly understood given climate change uncertainties. Landscape level models coupled with new robotics technology could reduce uncertainty and achieve large scale cost effective habitat restoration.
