Katie has worked with the UW Computational Hydrology Group as well as an engineering intern for the consulting firm Anchor QEA. Through these experiences and a love for learning about natural systems Katie looks forward to developing a career in Hydrology and Water Resource Engineering. Katie worked with the Mountain Hydrology group to expand her analysis skills and understanding of the interactions between climate change, snow, and the systems they influence. In her free time Katie also enjoys all things outdoors and active including rock climbing, trail running, yoga, and backpacking.
