Our group is within the Biological Systems Engineering Department at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) in southwestern Virginia. Our department has a core group of engineers/scientists focussing on many aspects of watershed science. We work closely with other faculty and graduate students across Virginia Tech, primarily in the departments of Biology, Civil/Environmental Engineering, Crop & Soil Environmental Sciences, Forestry, and Geosciences. Our work combines field-scale monitoring and experimentation, laboratory measurements and studies, and quantitative modeling.
