Stephanie is a Colorado native whose interests in hydrology and geology started in the desert canyons of her western Colorado home. She studied geosciences for her BS degree, hydrogeology for her MS degree, and Civil and Environmental Engineering for her PhD. She joined the faculty at CSU in 2007 and enjoys teaching both undergraduate and graduate classes in Watershed Science. Her research team is working to understand how headwater streams function across the diverse landscape of the West, including high mountains, forests, deserts, and cities.
