I use geographic information systems for the Iowa Flood Center's floodplain mapping team to edit and/or create flood inundation boundaries and related spatial datasets. I am also interested in the application of Python scripting to GIS software to automate tasks. My interest in flood research and applying my GIS training began after witnessing the flooding of 2008 in the Iowa City and Cedar Rapids areas. I previously worked for the Iowa Geological Survey as a GIS technician and analyst. I earned a BS in geography from the University of Iowa in 2002.
