Improving water management in Southern California through excellent understanding of climate impacts and broad contexts
Robert is currently in his residency at the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California where he is evaluating water loss and efficiency especially as it pertains to farmed lands. He has worked as a site cleanup engineer at the Los Angeles Regional Water Quality Control Board and has interned at the Orange County Water District where he researched the efficacy of natural photolysis on the disinfectant-by-product NDMA. 
 
For his solutions course Robert had the opportunity to research impacts of marine heatwaves and climate change on the Pacific Coast rocky intertidal community using ecological and remote-sensed data. During his time at MWD he hopes to help Southern California become more water independent in the face of climate change.
