Department of Biological and Environmental Engineering


The Steinschneider Research Group explores the intersection between anthropogenic, hydrologic, and climatic systems with an emphasis on water resources planning and management. The broad goal of our research is to provide decision-centric information for the sustainable design and management of integrated water resource systems. Our research focuses primarily in two areas: (1) a mechanistic characterization of hydroclimatic variability and change across space-time scales, focusing on both climate dynamics and hydrologic response, and (2) systems analysis to identify planning and management strategies that can manage hydroclimate uncertainty and improve the delivery of water services. This research demands an interdisciplinary approach that draws upon the physical sciences, data analytics, and systems simulation and optimization.
