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.
Kian is interested in developing computational hydrologic methods to assess the impacts of compound flooding in coastal communities.
Cheyenne is interested in stormwater monitoring and exploring advanced methods to monitor oil & grease pollution in stormwater.
Vincent is interested in developing advanced techniques to enhance the safety of transportation infrastructure against flooding. His project is supported by DOT.
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.
Ryan is interested in discovering novel techniques to remove emerging pollutants from the environment, especially from the coupled stormwater- coastal systems.
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.
Reyhaneh worked on modeling the compound inundation impacts of coastal climate change through statistical downscaling
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
