In this episode, Zachary Lauffenburger (PhD, Geosciences) tells his story of growing into a deeper understanding of how the forces of the earth shaped the beauty of the Rocky Mountain west, where he grew up (Colorado) and where he studies (Montana). He details his work on simulating hydrologic processes to predict impacts of climate change on water availability for agriculture. That work allows him to bridge expertise at the University of Montana in his home department, but also computer science and mathematics.
