I love Minnesota and its waters.  I am especially fond of Minneapolis and its city parks systems.  I am interested in how daily and unique activities affect our water systems and how man made constructs control those.  The quality of these inner city aquatic habitats is of interest to me because I live within them.  For my masters, I am working on a project that involves insect communities within an urban stream.  This project will involve observing the insect community makeup, the habitats they live in and how water drainage shapes those systems.
