About Me

I model motivating factors that influence decision-making and explore how these models can inform water management.

Research participants wanted

We are looking for volunteers to take part in a study of
the Hallman Gravel Pit Proposal.
The goals of the study are to gain an understanding of the issue from the perspective of different stakeholders. We will then create a formal model of the issue and then study the different ways that it may evolve and may be resolved. It is important to note that while we are studying this situation, we are not involved in the decision-making process.

As a participant in this study, you would be asked to complete one online or telephone interview.
Your participation would involve one session, which is anticipated to last less than 2 hours.

Hygrometers

Hair hygrometers are one of my favorite types of weather tech. These devices use horse hair to measure, communicate, and sometimes record humidity. Here you can see and read about a few of my favorite hygrometers.
