Brook Thompson

PhD Student


Brook Thompson from the Yurok and Karuk tribes of Northern California goes in detail how the Klamath River water quality is linked not just to a decline in salmon, but a decline in mental, physical, and cultural health of her tribes. Through personal anecdotes and using her experience as a civil engineer, Thompson teaches lessons on how we can shift our perspective about water and fish, and how that can benefit research and California policy in the future.
