BIO

I'm part of a project testing the EPA's Draft Method C which involves using qPCR for monitoring fecal contamination at beaches in Muskegon County. This summer we will begin Microbial Source Tracking (MST) at select beaches to determine the sources of  fecal contaminants and aid in intervention efforts. I am involved with various other projects and am happy to lend a helping hand to my fellow AWRI colleagues.

BIO

I am a West Michigan local and have been working on a variety of stream and beach monitoring projects with the Rediske Lab since 2017. My research explores streambank erosion, E. coli monitoring, surface water modeling, stream habitat and biota surveys, and stakeholder engagement. As a graduate student, his research addresses the public and environmental health restoration of the Little Flower Creek watershed in Muskegon County, MI.
