As Piton’s Office Administrator, Ali dots the i’s and crosses the t’s so the field crew can stay focused on geology. However, she has been known to escape to the field on occasion to lend a hand. Ali’s educational background is in Hydrology with a B.S. in Environmental Science from the University of Idaho and a M.S. in Water Resources Engineering from Oregon State University. She has worked primarily in the Western US on streamflow projections, water rights, and drinking water management. When she’s not chasing down geologists for receipts, she’s chasing around her 4-year-old son Henry who has already started his own rock collection.
