Merced, having joined in July 2017. He is interested in using the tools of science and

policy to better manage ecosystems, particularly rivers, for a variety of objectives.

Alan majored in environmental and atmospheric science at UC Berkeley, graduating

in 2014. He then did internships in applied ecosystem science and land use in the

San Francisco Bay Area and Washington State. Alan is excited to use geospatial,

statistical, and other tools to address pressing water management issues in his
