I am a Hydrogeologist/GIS specialist with a background in aqueous geochemistry and geochemical modeling. I principally work within the Aquifer Mapping Program creating 3D Hydrogeologic Framework models. This project is part of an ongoing effort to produce high quality 3D Hydrogeologic subsurface maps of the entire state. My current projects include the Delaware Basin (southeastern NM), Central High Plains in (east central NM) and Rio Rancho (central NM).

This past year I also worked to support the Bureau’s Climate and Water Science Advisory Panel project.
