I am an Assistant Professor of Biomedical, Chemical, and Environmental Engineering at the University of Cincinnati, and a member of the Hydrosystems Research Group at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. I specialize in climate risk management for the water sector and sustainable management of water resources. My research focuses on increasing the resilience of water systems to climate variability and change through the use of advanced climate science and hydrologic forecasting, in combination with innovative water resources management techniques and methods for decision-making under uncertainty. My academic work has been supported by more than one million dollars of grants and awards, including, among others, a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship, a Fulbright Fellowship, and grants from the World Bank, Army Corps of Engineers, and California Department of Water Resources. 

Because of my role in the development of the World Bank’s Decision Tree for Confronting Climate Uncertainty, I shared in the World Bank’s 2015 Knowbel Prize for “Understanding the Impact of Climate Change and Other Risks on Hydropower”. 

I have experience managing climate change risk assessments for water projects in California, Mexico, East Africa, South Asia, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East, and have served as an expert consultant for the World Bank, the International Finance Corporation, the United Nations Development Program, the World Food Program, and the Millennium Challenge Corporation.
