Lauren is a PhD student in hydrology at Colorado School of Mines, working with Reed Maxwell. She completed her undergraduate at Colorado College with a major in Physics and a secondary focus in Sociology. Her research interests include using integrated models to better understand hydro-climate interactions in alpine, snow-dominated environments; climate change impacts on headwaters catchments; and collaborating with the private sector to integrate more science into climate change adaptation efforts.
