Kayla is an Environmental Scientist, specializing in watershed science and water quality. Her master’s thesis involved analysis of nutrient and microcystin status and trends in the Klamath Basin. She has additional experience in hydrology, fluvial geomorphology, and geology, and has worked on geomorphic road analysis and water quality monitoring efforts. She is interested in nutrient, chemical, and sediment dynamics on a watershed-scale, as well as natural and human disturbance impacts on watershed processes and aquatic systems. Kayla spends her free time exploring northern California’s forests, rivers, and beaches, and playing bass clarinet and bagpipes.
