Water and Environmental Engineering

Hydrology analyses the movement and storage of water in complex environmental systems in which humans are important actors. A systems approach is needed to adequately understand this dynamic physical and socio-economic system with the goal to provide water security for people and nature. The Water and Environmental Engineering research group develops and applies systems methods to advance hydrologic theory and to build and evaluate predictive models for sustainable water management.

The Water and Environmental Engineering research group is involved in a number of key areas and projects. Particular current interests are:

  • Predictions in ungauged basins
  • Uncertainty and sensitivity analysis
  • Catchment classification
  • Integrated assessment of change impacts

I am always looking for highly motivated graduate students and postdocs to join my group. If any of these topics interest you, then please contact me.
