DR. ANNE NOLIN
Professor, Department of Geography
Dr. Anne Nolin is a Professor in the Geography Department at the University of Nevada, Reno. Her research focuses on snow hydrology and climate, snow-forest interactions, and mountains as social-ecological systems. Nolin has three decades of experience in remote sensing, field measurements, and modeling of changing snow and ice. She and her students have published on “at risk” snow, impacts of wildfire on snow, new snow metrics in a warming world, melting snow and glaciers from Greenland to Alaska to the Andes, and new ways of mapping snow and ice from space. In new work, Nolin and students are exploring how declining snow cover in mountain watersheds across the West influence forest health and fire vulnerability and how post-fire conditions affect snow and watershed hydrology.
Hannah Van Dusen
M.S. CANDIDATE - HYDROLOGIC SCIENCES
Hannah is from the Seattle area and received her B.A. in 2020 from Lewis and Clark College, where she majored in Biology with a minor in Mathematics. Her research focuses on the post-fire hydrologic impacts of watersheds in the seasonal snow zone.
PH.D. CANDIDATE - HYDROLOGIC SCIENCES
Born and raised in Vermont, Jack has been interested in snow and the mountains from a young age. He received his B.A. magna cum laude in Geography from the University of Colorado, Boulder, in 2016. His prior experiences include hydrologic modeling work in Australia and interning at the Niwot Ridge LTER in Colorado. At UNR, Jack is part of the NASA SnowEx campaign, which working towards the optimization and innovation of the remote sensing of snow for a future satellite mission. His research interests include remote sensing of snow mountain environments, mountain hydrology, ground-based data collection, and Western U.S. water resource management. During his free time, Jack enjoys snowboarding, biking, skateboarding, and photography.
Ph.D. CANDIDATE - ATMOSPHERIC SCIENCES
Ehsan Mosagegh is a Ph.D. student in the graduate program of Atmospheric Sciences at the University of Nevada Reno. His areas of interest are artificial intelligence, remote sensing, and the Cryosphere environment. He is specifically interested in developing machine learning and deep learning algorithms to obtain knowledge and insight from remote sensing data of the Cryosphere to address problems such as climate change.
Ph.D. CANDIDATE - HYDROLOGIC SCIENCES
Ally received her BA in Geography and Environmental Studies from the University of Colorado, Boulder, in 2022. Her research interests include post-fire effects on mountain snowpack, water resource management, remote sensing, and community engagement. In her free time, Ally enjoys hiking and snowboarding.
