Rosemary Pazdral is a PhD student in Water Resources Science at Oregon State University (OSU) studying streams in the Oregon Coast Range, where she grew up. Before coming to OSU, Rosemary studied in the Landscape Ecology and Conservation Lab at the University of Washington for her master’s degree. Rosemary loves doing field work, working on carpentry projects and exploring the earth on Google street view.
Rosemary is broadly interested in the intersection between natural and human systems and how we can use science as well as community knowledge to inform management. For her doctoral research, she studies streamflow generation processes in forested environments and how natural watershed storage influences stream water resilience to climate change.
