Welcome to Hydrologic Science, Engineering and Sustainability at Arizona State University:
Our research group at Arizona State University studies hydrological processes in natural and urban environments and their interactions with ecological, atmospheric and geomorphic phenomenon. In these pages, you can learn about the current projects in our group, our field and modeling activities, our various group members and how to apply to join our group. We are part of the School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE), Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability and Innovation (GIOSI) and the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment (SSEBE). Thus, we are integrating scientific, engineering and sustainability principles in water resources. Our students are part of graduate programs in Hydrosystems Engineering, Environmental Engineering and Geological Sciences. Prof. Vivoni is the Specialty Area Coordinator for the Graduate Program in Hydrosystems Engineering in SSEBE. Our group is also part of the ASU Global Drylands Center and Decision Center for a Desert City. For opportunities to conduct graduate research with our group, see Contact

Regional Focus and Opportunities:
Our group has a regional focus in the southwest US and northern Mexico, in particular with respect to US-Mexico border issues. We also have prior efforts in Latin America and the Caribbean, in particular Mexico, Cuba, Brazil and Puerto Rico. Students from Latin American countries are encouraged to contact us.
