*Incoming PhD Student for Fall 2021
Katarena holds a Bachelor’s (2016) and Master’s (2018) degree in Hydrology from the University of Arizona, where her work focused on the hydrologic characterization of the Landscape Evolution Observatory at Biosphere 2. She looks forward to starting her PhD journey at the University of Colorado Boulder with Professor Holly Barnard where her work will focus on studying the Critical Zone in the American West. Katarena is also a member of the AGU Diversity and Inclusion Advisory Committee and part of the team planning the “Cultivating Leadership for Change and Justice in the Geosciences” virtual workshop series. During her free time, you will probably find her baking something she’s craving, trying to grow, relaxing at the beach or swimming endless laps in a pool.
