Facilities and Opportunities

Our group and the Hydrosystems Engineering program is located in the Rob and Melani Walton Center for Planetary Health (WCPH) on the ASU Tempe Campus. In collaborations with others, we are launching the Center for Hydrologic Innovations to scale up our research efforts. In this facility, we have faculty and graduate student offices, a high-bay laboratory, field storage areas, bench space, and an operational open channel.

Our group seeks students and professionals with interests in hydrology. We have opportunities for undergraduates, MS and PhD students, and postdoctoral associates, in these areas:

  • Hydrologic Modeling & Sensing
  • Desert Hydrological Processes
  • Urban Hydrology in Arid Areas

For 2023, we are seeking several graduate students and postdocs in urban hydrology and climate through the Southwest Urban Corridor Integrated Field Laboratory and in hydrologic modeling and remote sensing through the Colorado River Infrastructure Asset Framework.

Our work in Latin America provides opportunities for students interested in Spanish. We have a special interest in recruiting from the Western Hemisphere, including Puerto Rico.
