Watershed Sciences Department
Pursuing MS in Ecology; Faculty Advisor: Dr. Timothy Walsworth
Skylar is an MS student in the Ecology and Watershed Sciences program working with Dr. Timothy Walsworth. Skylar grew up in Coastal California and received degrees in Biology and Creative Writing from UC Santa Cruz in 2019. After graduation, Skylar spent some time working with native desert fishes in Eastern Utah and Salmon in Northern California. His current research examines the large scale drivers of stream intermittency and how native salmonids use non-perennial tributaries in a landscape increasingly impacted by climate change. In his free time, Skylar attempts to train his puppy, reads occasionally, and enjoys exercise.
