Yousef is interested in experimental-numerical modeling of flow behavior in natural areas and engineered systems. His area of interest is studying environmental processes in urban water resources.
Cheynne is interested in Rainwater Harvesting Systems (RWH) to conserve water and energy. She is using Life Cycle Assessment to evaluate RWH sustainability.
Vincent is interested in developing advanced techniques to enhance the safety of transportation infrastructure against flooding. His project is supported by DOT.
Ryan is interested in discovering novel techniques to remove emerging pollutants from the environment, especially from the coupled stormwater- coastal systems.
Joaquin works on the application of GIS for Sea-Level Rise inundation analyses. He also studies groundwater rise as a result of Sea-Level Rise.
Wynneth worked on 2-dimensional stormwater modeling to propose mitigation plans. Her study area is Sorrento Valley, San Diego, which is located in the flood plain.
Thomas worked on designing green stormwater control techniques to maximize the environmental benefits. His study area was a tributary of the San Diego River.
Kian worked on the application of GIS for watershed delineation and analysis. He also uses hydrologic methods to develop hydrographs for 2-dimensional modeling.
Atalie worked on the application of GIS for Sea-Level Rise inundation analyses. She also compiled data on community issues as a result of Sea-Level Rise.
Michael worked on the optimization of drainage infrastructure to minimize the risk of failure of the utility poles. His thesis defense recording is available at: HERE
Reyhaneh worked on modeling the compound inundation impacts of coastal climate change through statistical downscaling
