Please briefly describe your current job.
My dissertation is on Florida stream flow and particle transport modelling in the Everglades. I also work part-time for a small consulting firm, ASRus.
What is your favorite part of your current position
I mostly enjoy the opportunity to work on interesting projects with great people. I also like the flexibility of being a graduate student. My flexible schedule allows me to coach high school track in the Spring.
How did your EAS education prepare you for your current job?
The faculty in EAS were fantastic and the low student to faculty ratios created an excellent learning environment. The computer and modelling skills I learned have been very useful.
What do you wish you had known as an EAS undergraduate in order to land the job of your dreams?
I wish I knew how important networking was. I always thought that having a great resume would be enough, but I have learned that knowing the right people will usually be more important.
