Research Interests

Assessment of the potential impacts climatic change / climatic variability may have on the hydrologic cycle (i.e. water availability). Development of "natural" sustainable remediation technologies for use in urban and/or industrial settings. Integration of emerging technologies (ex. G.I.S.) into the standard civil/environmental engineering curriculum.


  • Hydraulic Resistance in Grass Swales Designed for Small Flow Conveyance
  • Modeling the Combined Effects of Forest and Agriculture on Water Availability
  • Regionalization of Extreme Precipitation Estimates for the Alabama Rainfall Analysis
