Herman Group   |   Water Resources Systems Engineering

We’re a research group in the UC Davis Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. Our goal is to improve computational methods for simulation and optimization of water resources systems, including climate adaptation planning under uncertainty, multi-objective reservoir control, and parameter sensitivity in flood and drought prediction. Current studies focus on systems where water supply is strongly linked to agricultural production, energy generation, and land use, such as California and the Western U.S. For more information visit the research page, or check out recent papers. We are also regular contributors to open-source software.
