Heal the Bay Science & Policy

Lucy Rieves

Water Quality Modeler

Lucy uses environmental and historical bacteria data to create the NowCast models for Heal the Bay, and makes the weekly Beach Report Card grades using recent bacterial data from coastal California counties. She studied Applied Mathematics, Atmospheric and Oceanic Science, and Geographic Information Systems at the University of Colorado in Boulder, where she worked on projects modeling Avalanche risk in the Colorado backcountry and assessing future risk of crop loss with the National Center for Atmospheric Research climate models. Lucy loves exploring and quantifying trends and relationships occurring in the natural world and producing means to improve public health by increasing awareness, as well as any outdoor recreation opportunities!
