Montana specializes in simulation of hydrologic conditions and quantitative field assessment of streams, wetlands, and urban systems. She collects and analyzes streamflow, hydrologic, water quality and sediment data and participates in a range of analyses and engineering projects directed at habitat protection and enhancement, and maintaining conformance with flood, water quality, hydromodification and other hazard-protection regulations. When she’s not in the office, she’s most likely hiking, riding her bike around town or attempting to play the banjo.
