CW3E Graduate Student Selected for National Water Center Summer Institute Fellowship

August 3rd, 2018

Graduate Student, Maryam Asgari Lamjiri, was selected as a research fellow in the 2018 National Water Center Innovators Program Summer Institute. The program took place at the National Water Center in Tuscaloosa, Alabama from June 10 through July 27, 2018. Maryam, along with two other students (Sean Matus, University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign; Kelly Flint, San Diego State University), worked on a project entitled ‘Using Dimensionless Scaling Parameters as Decision Metrics in a Heterogeneous Hydraulic Routing Scheme’ with the goal of increasing accuracy and robustness while decreasing computational costs of the hydraulic routing scheme used in the National Water Model. Students interacted with leaders in the field of hydrology, hydraulics, and applied mathematics. They were introduced to new tools and concepts and formed relationships with other fellows who will potentially be future colleagues. The project was presented at the capstone event on July 27, 2018, and the report will be posted here.
