Dr. Holly Barnard

Forest Hydrologist and Professor of Geography

Dr. Holly Barnard is a Forest Hydrologist and Professor of Geography at the University of Colorado – Boulder. Her research investigates how forest processes affect water flow dynamics and pathways in soil and streams, and conversely, how water flow paths affect ecological function in mountainous areas. Her research involves a combination of field experimentation, field observations and laboratory analysis, and is fundamentally interdisciplinary and collaborative. Holly has collaborated with dozens of excellent scientists from a variety of disciplines to conduct research projects that have achieved far more than any of us could have on our own. These collaborations include engagement with scientists in my department and research institute, as well as, with federal scientists and colleagues at other academic institutions. On her free time, Holly enjoys trad climbing, road biking, and skiing. She is snowboard to tele to AT convert!
