William "Ryan" Currier

Graduate Student

Originally from Upstate New York, Ryan graduated magna cum laude from the University of Colorado, majoring in both Environmental Studies and Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. While in Boulder and travels throughout the West, he learned the treasure and value of water to the region. Having discovered his passion for studying various parts of the hydrological cycle, he began working with micrometeorologists at the U.S. Geological Survey to study the rates of evapotranspiration and carbon exchange throughout various ecosystems in the front range of Colorado. While at the USGS he continued his course work in physics and mathematics. For his masters thesis, Ryan evaluated the WRF model and PRISM against independent observations of snow depth that were collected for the OLYMPEX campaign in Olympic National Park. Ryan was awarded a NASA Earth and Space Sciences fellowship to integrate multiple remote sensing platforms with hydrologic models to better quantify snow in forests.

In his free time, Ryan enjoys snowboarding, photography, trail running and playing team sports.
