I am an Assistant Research Professor at the Geosystems Research Institute and the Northern Gulf Institute, Mississippi State University. My research is focused on hydrological and hydrodynamic modeling using HSPF, EFDC, ADH, and WASP computer models, as well as in the incorporation of remote sensing information into water resources models. I am also a registered professional civil engineer (PE).
