Portrait

My research focuses extensively on water scarcity and the financial risk it can cause companies, utilities, and governments.  I am currently analyzing risk faced by commercial shippers of bulk cargo and hydropower producers on the Great Lakes of North America. I also have a MSEE (Masters of Science in Environmental Engineering) from UNC-Chapel Hill, where my research focused on investigating membrane materials used in water treatment and desalination.

Born and raised in Texas, I am a lifelong University of Texas Longhorns fan, as well as a long suffering Houston Astros fan. I grew up with a latent understanding of the potential impacts of water scarcity from annual visits to the Meyer family ranch in the dry Texas Hill Country. I enjoy cooking, good barbecue, keeping score at baseball games, photography, cycling, reading, and (more recently) college basketball.

Thanks for taking a look around, and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
