I primarily act as a support scientist for the Long Term Resource Monitoring Program (LTRMP) on the Upper Mississippi River (UMR). The support is provided through coordination with field staff, database quality assurance, and data analysis and reporting. I develop spatial databases as needed for LTRMP baseline data. Related activities include working on other studies that require sampling of UMR resources.
