Welcome to the Hydroinformatics Research Group at the University of Virginia

We are a team of researchers exploring new ways to bring advancements in computing and data science to society’s most challenging water resources management problems.

Our group is housed within the interdisciplinary Link Lab, a 17,000 square foot laboratory in the Engineering School at the University of Virginia that brings together faculty and students from across departments and disciplines with a shared interest in cyber-physical systems. If you are interested in joining our group, please check out our openings.

In addition to the material on this website, we also maintain a Github organization where much of the the code resulting from our research is released free and open source.
