Nick joined WSE in 2021 after earning his Master of Science in Civil Engineering under the Hydraulic Engineering, Stream Restoration, and River Mechanics sub-discipline at Colorado State University. In his graduate research, he studied the effects of floodplain vegetation density on flows in meandering compound channels using 3D numerical modeling. During his undergraduate degree, Nick engaged in environmental engineering research as well as design and implementation of drinking water-supply systems in Bolivia as a member, secretary, and lastly president of the University of Idaho Humanitarian Engineering Corps. These experiences strengthened his desire to pursue hydraulic engineering for the benefit of humanity and the environment.

Beyond engineering, Nick enjoys playing music, learning languages, cooking, baking, and exploring the world.
