About me

Gender MALE
Industry Science
Occupation PhD Candidate in Water Resources, University of Idaho
Location Palouse, WA, United States
Introduction I am a PhD student in Water Resources at University of Idaho studying Chinook salmon migration. In a nutshell, I track salmon movements using isotopes deposited in their ear bones (otoliths). Previously I have been an itinerant scientist, helping to design next-gen coronary stents for a humongous corporation, preceded by stints in plastics bioengineering, analytical chemistry, and fisheries ecology. Outside of work I enjoy time with my 9 year old son and my fiancé. Playing acoustic guitar, playing basketball, working in coffee shops and anything that gets me outside and away from working inside for too long.
Interests guitar, blues, folk, basketball, fly fishing, tenkara, backpacking, reading, fishing, ecology, coffee, mixology, cocktails
