Water Resources Engineering Area of Study for M.S., M.P.S. or Ph.D. in Environmental Resources EngineeringApply
Water Resources Engineering addresses the analysis, prediction and design of water resource systems.
Emphasis is placed on applying engineering techniques to reduce impacts on human and natural systems. Students pursue solutions to water resources problems, in recognition of environmental, economic, legal, social and managerial constraints. The department has computing facilities, field sites, and a fluids laboratory with a tilting sediment recirculating flume and river geomorphology table to support research activities. The program takes advantage of departmental expertise in GIS and remote sensing to address problems at a variety of scales. Analytic techniques typically blend a combination of statistics, numerical analyses, and computer science.
Program prerequisite or co-requisite courses include at least one semester of study in fluid mechanics, computing methods, and engineering hydrology.
Program mastery courses beyond the departmental requirement include at least one course (3+ credit hours) in each of these areas of competence: 1) Physical Hydrology; 2) Computational Modeling; and 3) Water Quality.

Graduate Research Topic
I am working with i-Tree Hydro, and urban hydrology model. I am looking at batch processing in i-Tree Hydro for roughly 1200 Block Groups in the Bronx County NY. A sensitivity analysis of the output will then be preformed.

Graduate Research Topic
I am currently assessing the practicality of terrestrial laser scanning (TLS) for evaluating short and long term changes in stream morphology and sediment loads. I am comparing TLS data collected in Oneida Creek and in McKinley Hollow (Catskill Mountains, New York) to LiDAR data as well as orthoimagery and digitized historical aerial imagery dating back as far as the 1930s.

"Thousands have lived without love, not one without water" - W.H. Auden
Water is both a finite resource and a human right. Understanding this and the fact that steady population growth puts increased stress on its availability, makes the need to take action a high priority. I obtained my undergraduate degree in Environmental Engineering at the Universidad Tecnológica de Panamá (UTP) and worked at the Hydraulic and Hydrotechnical Research Center of the UTP, as a Researcher in water quality and quantity management, I have several practice experiences including working in research projects such as COL 07-036 Project "Monitoring the effect that specific rain events have on the quality of water supply sources for water treatment in the city of Panama" and conducted the project "Ocean Energy: roadmap and strategies for Panama ". Likewise, I developed my thesis study regarding the Pacora River basin, analyzing the spatial and temporal variation of water quality and assigning specific uses for the water resources in the study areas.

Previous Graduate Study: Drexel University (Environmental Engine)
I am interested in solving problems associated with water resources and climate change. During my undergraduate and master's, I got tremendous amount of exposure in modeling and monitoring green infrastructures and stormwater management. At ESF, my research focus on the overlap between remote sensing and water resources. My long term goal is to develop spatial analysis tools for solving water resource problems in a changing climate.
