Former PhD student (2013)
Born and raised in Colorado, Mark has had a life-long fascination of snow-capped mountain peaks. During his graduate experience in the UW Mountain Hydrology Research Group, he studied the patterns and rhythms of mountain hydrosystems and assessed our tools for understanding them. Mark holds a B.S. in Civil Engineering from Gonzaga University (Spokane, WA, 2005). He received a M.S. in Civil & Environmental Engineering at the University of Washington in 2009, and completed his PhD in Civil & Environmental Engineering at UW in 2013. He is a former postdoctoral fellow in the Advanced Study Program at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (Boulder, CO), and is now a postdoc at the University of Colorado.
His research interests include remote sensing of snow, impacts of forcing and parameter uncertainty on snow and hydrologic modeling, spatial variations of snow, and streamflow forecasting in snow-dominated watersheds.
In his free time, Mark enjoys snowboarding, hiking, backpacking, traveling the world, sailing, and crafting homebrew.
