Dr. Senter is leading Balance’s efforts to bring process-based geomorphic and hydrologic principles to watershed, stream channel and water resource issues in Southern California. Anne’s favorite projects are investigating, developing and implementing site-specific channel restoration designs and monitoring programs. Her doctoral research was focused on wood dynamics; she applies this knowledge to restoration projects by utilizing streamwood placements to provide enhanced habitat conditions and hydraulic complexity for aquatic and terrestrial species that depend on ecologically healthy stream corridors. Her ability to successfully interface with regulatory agencies helps to move project designs from concept to completion. Dr. Senter has managed projects spanning geomorphic assessments of degraded channel conditions and monitoring of post-restoration conditions; restoration design and implementation; stream and sediment gaging; surface water/subsurface hydrogeologic studies; evaluation of tidal-lagoon, lakebed, and riverine interactions; stormwater flood control and hydromodification analyses for new developments; and water quality monitoring. Anne is proficient in conveying scientific information to the intended audience and exhibits strong project management skills that enable her to work effectively with watershed stakeholders to create scientifically sound solutions for complex environmental issues. On the weekends, Anne hangs out with her dogs, and cycles with friends and family to keep in shape for the AIDS/LifeCycle fundraising event, a 1-week, 545-mile ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles that happens every June. Anne tries to keep up with the latest scientific papers on wood dynamics and enjoys reading… almost everything, but particularly natural history and science/climate fiction.
