Research and Academic Interests:

My research has focused on issues relating to the Middle Rio Grande, including bosque evapotranspiration estimates, climate change impacts on stream flow, and the intersection of restoration & flood control goals.  I direct the Hydraulics Lab where we build physical models of storm water structures for the local flood control authority and the DOT.  In addition to traditional water resources courses, I teach a graduate level course that emphasizes the modeling capabilities of GIS.
