Interested student?

If you are interested in graduate study and research at the confluence of water resources and policy, we currently are awaiting award decisions on proposals with RA positions in the following topical areas:

• Mountain agriculture, water, food security
• Adaptive management in vulnerable river basins
• Water security

More details of current projects and proposals submitted are available on request.

Geography is interdisciplinary and provides an extremely enriching intellectual home. Students interested in working with me may also apply to the Graduate Interdisciplinary Program’s Arid Lands Resource Sciences. We collaborate extensively across social and physical science disciplines. Our current and past students have come from degree programs in geography, hydrology, interdisciplinary field studies, climatology, engineering, and economics. After completing their degrees, students have gone on into academia, agencies, and non-governmental organizations. Our ex-students can be found across the U.S., Europe, Latin America, and South Asia.
