  • Degree Sought: MS
  • Graduate Advisor(s): Kroll
  • Area of Study: Water Resources Engineering
  • Undergraduate Institution: Suez University

Personal Statement
My research interests are based on the analysis of flow duration curves (FDCs) of streams, their main driving factors, and their shifts due to disturbance. My masters thesis explores the significance of hydrologic alteration through FDC-based hypothesis testing which aims at better informed decisions related to management and planning for the resource.

Graduate Research Topic
Establishing River Signatures for Evaluating the Hydrologic Alteration in Flow Regimes.
