Does anyone have video recommendations for studying population reads? I'm trying to grind my way up from the micros, and I think this type of studying would really come in handy.

Hi, I've recently gotten back into playing and studying poker. I'd be happy to chat with you about hand histories/theory/etc.
I don't know the rules of this forum too well, so I'm not sure if I can add my Skype username or email.
Anyway, IMO, a win rate of 15-17bb/100, even at micro stakes, is really, really high. Not to deter you from your goal, but I don't think there are many players with that win rate that haven't moved up to 50nl/100nl ASAP. Also, 16k hands is a really small sample size and your win rate fluctuates wildly over that many hands, so I wouldn't put too much faith into your win rate over 16k hands.
How are you doing at 5nl Zoom so far?
Edit: I figure I should mention something about myself, too. I've probably taken 1-2 years off from the game, but most recently, I was a small winner (2-4bb/100) at 25nl and 50nl on WPN (Winning Poker Network) over maybe 50-150k hands. However, I would always cash out my winnings instead of moving up.
Now, I'm starting at 5nl at America's Cardroom (Winning Poker Network), and the plan is to grind my way up to the small stakes (100nl-200nl).
Edit 2: Looking over my Holdem Manager databases, the biggest winners I see at 10nl are at 6-10bb/100 over 100k+ hands. Every player is running way above EV, too.
