Associate Professor, Civil Engineering
Jonathan directs the UVA Hydroinformatics Research Group and is a faculty member in the Department of Engineering Systems & Environment. He is also the Associate Director of the UVA Link Lab and an affiliated faculty member with the UVA Environmental Resilience Institute and Center for Transportation Studies.
Postdoc - Research Associate
Mohamed completed his PhD at UVA working on the HydroShare project, researching ways to represent hydrologic models within a resource-based hydrologic information system, and designing a flood warning system for VDOT. He also researched urban hydrology and stormwater management as part of his degree.
Postdoc - Research Associate
Bakinam completed her PhD at UVA on modeling regional-scale hydrologic systems to understand water availability and drought. Her work is part of the DataNet Federation Consortium (DFC) project using iRODS to create workflows for hydrologic modeling. She will work on the GeoTrust project improving reproducibility in computational hydrology in her postdoc.
Ben is studying urban water infrastructure. His current research is on the response of groundwater levels to changing tidal and precipitation conditions in Norfolk, VA. This research will play an important role in regional-scale flood forecasting systems in environments with a high groundwater table.
Alex is currently researching smart stormwater management for coastal communities. He has been investigating the use of Personal Weather Stations (PWS) for capturing rainfall during extreme weather events in Norfolk, VA.
Choi is working on the HydroShare project and is currently building the pySUMMA library for the SUMMA hydrologic model.
Iman is working on using power harvesting and dynamic power management for water monitoring in flooding and water quality applications.
Gina is studying hydrology and wetland delineation using remote sensing and GIS. Her current research is resulting in new methods for identifying small-scale wetlands to assist in transportation planning.
Jeff is researching the application of cyber-physical systems approaches for smart stormwater management to mitigate flooding impacts. His work focuses on Norfolk, Virginia as a case study region.
Yaween is studying resilient infrastructure systems. His current work addresses the risk of flooding impacts to transportation infrastructure including bridges and culverts in particular. His current work is using 2D hydrodynamic models to simulate flooding in urban coastal environments.
Faria is working on better understanding transportation disruptions due to flooding in the Hampton Roads region of Virginia using social media data like Google Waze.
Linnea is studying watershed modeling and market-based pollution control. She is currently working with VDOT to create a nutrient credit decision support system using ArcGIS Online. She is co-advised with Prof. Larry Band.
Xiafei is studying smart stormwater system, incorporated with the idea of Internet of Things (IoT) and cyber-physical systems (CPS), to monitor and control moisture content at bioretention basins through long-distance wireless communication network.
