Anna is a Ph.D. student in Environmental Studies at CU Boulder. She is broadly interested in understanding how humans impact the nutrient cycles and ecology of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems in order to better protect and manage the quantity and quality of our water resources. She uses a combination of observations, data analysis tools, and modeling to figure out interactions between biotic and abiotic processes, and is interested in how we use this information to inform decision making at multiple scales. 

Prior to arriving at CU Boulder, Anna received a Master's in Oceanography from Rutgers University in New Jersey, where she studied carbon cycling in the Delaware Estuary. She also worked as an environmental consultant to Philadelphia Water's Green City, Clean Waters program and spent a year in Washington, D.C. working with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration as a Knauss Marine Policy Fellow.
