Water quality analysis and management using watershed-scale geographic information and modeling systems. Sustainable development is one of the most challenging areas facing today’s societies. The challenge is to strike a balance between a sustainable environment and an acceptable level of economic progress. My goal is to advance our awareness of the key environmental and social processes impacting public water resources.
Water resources; engineering aspects of water quality; surveying; mapping; and geographic information systems. Water quality management and source water protection using watershed-scale geographic information and field-scale investigation. Environmental impact of green infrastructure; reuse of wastewater for irrigation; and reduction of erosion on steep slopes using biological, mechanical, and chemical systems. Seeking international opportunities to enhance food production systems and urban water usage.
