Dylan is a junior in Civil and Environmental Engineering with a minor in Physics. He is from Fall City, WA, and growing up at the foot of the cascades gave him a fondness for the mountains from an early age. Backpacking, and skiing have been his main form of getting around outside for years, but rock climbing has become a recent obsession. While Dylan enjoys the outdoors recreationally, he’s also fascinated by the processes that sustain them. Mountain glaciers and snowpack act as massive reservoirs that supply western Washington with a year-round supply of freshwater. It would cost billions to build artificial replacements, so he wants to quantify the benefits of preserving these natural resources. Dylan is also a member of the NASA Space Grant Scholarship group, and as the name implies, he love all things space related. There’s way more water up there!
