Kari Bigham is an instructor and doctoral candidate in the Department of Biological & Agricultural Engineering at Kansas State University. Coming from a corn and soybean farm in northeast Kansas, Bigham plans to spend her career focusing on ways to manage and restore degraded streams that drain agricultural landscapes. To date, she has received funding from state agencies to monitor and improve streambank stabilization systems using both woody and rock structures.
Additionally, Bigham is a licensed engineer with experience designing streambank stabilization and stream restoration systems, as well as water quality and quantity BMPs in both agricultural and urban settings. Bigham lives adjacent to the mighty Kaw River near the capitol of Kansas with her husband, Dan, and one-year-old son, Lane.
