Welcome to the Watershed Sustainability Research Group website


Based in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of South Florida, we are a group of engineers and scientists interested in solving water management problems by creating linkages between the hydrological cycle, ecosystems, and society.

The intent of this website is to provide a taste for the type of research we are dedicated to.


Research Questions:

  • How do we sustainably manage and develop river basins in the Global South?

  • How do we integrate hydrology with coupled human and natural systems?

  • How do we design river flows for society's well-being and ecological restoration?

  • What are the effects of water infrastructure on surrounding coastal and freshwater ecosystems?

  • What are the effects of climate change and other externalities in food-water-energy systems?
