Krissy is an urban hydrologist broadly interested in coupled human-natural systems, particularly as they relate to water management in cities. Her SESYNC project focuses on characterizing how stormwater management strategies change over time and what socio-political factors facilitate transitions towards more sustainable management approaches. Her work will identify policies and governance structures that can catalyze transitions towards more resilient, sustainable stormwater management systems. Krissy comes to SESYNC from the University of Pittsburgh Department of Geology and Planetary Science, where she earned her PhD in the summer of 2014. For her dissertation research, she assessed the type and magnitude of hydrologic changes associated with urban development in nine U.S. cities. In Pittsburgh, she was also engaged in watershed planning efforts to quantify the potential impact of installing green infrastructure in an urban watershed.
