Other Teaching and Advising

I currently advise and mentor two M.S. students, and one Ph.D. student, Kyle Knupp, Mike Harrison, and Mina Shahed Behrouz.  Since 2014, 4 Ph.D. students (1 coadvised with D. Scott) and 5 M.S. student (one coadvised with T. Thompson) have graduated from my program.

I am a member of several regional and statewide committees that focus upon watershed management.  These include the Science and Technical Advisory Committee for the Chesapeake Bay Program, 2010-2018 U.S. EPA, and the Urban Water Resources Research Council of the Environment and Water Resources Institute, American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE); I currently chair the Stormwater Modeling Standing Committee.  I am also a member of the American
Society of Agricultural and Biological Engineers, Water Environment Federation, and the American
Geophysical Union.

Program Focus

My research program focuses upon improving the management of urban stormwater at its source, advancing the design of stormwater control measures (SCMs), also known as best management practices (BMPs), to improve resulting water quality. Outputs include improved mathematical models and monitoring techniques for assessing SCM performance. These outputs support improved design. Better designed SCMs are more predictable, and more effective, achieving  greater pollution reduction at lower costs, which will lead to improved surface water quality publications, and reports.

 

Extension Program Focus

The goal of my extension program is to improve the understanding of practices used in managing urban stormwater.  My extension activities are intended to extend proven LID research to stormwater managers and designers as they adapt designs to improve water quality performance.  Another goal is to provide appropriate information to the public that will build capacity and knowledge on improving quality of urban runoff and other nonpoint source issues.  As part of meeting these objectives, my extension program develops education programs targeted at groups with the greatest need in the most current issues in stormwater management.  These include developing a watershed-based educational series; providing technical and educational guidance on stormwater BMPs; and working collaboratively with local/state/federal agencies, consultants, and other academics in developing an evaluation protocol for BMPs that incorporate proprietary technologies, verifying performance without hindering innovation.  I have developed a series of self-sustaining Extension workshops focused on educating BMP designers and reviewers about the newest and most cost-effective urban stormwater treatments available. The objective of these workshops will be to increase the capacity of my audiences so they are able to use leading edge engineering practices to address water quality issues.

Current Projects

Developing a self-sustaining workshop series on urban watershed management

Exploring the implementation of an evaluation program for proprietary BMPs in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, a U.S. EPA Science and Technical Advisory Committee (STAC) funded workshop

Urban Nutrient Management Certification/Training program with VDCR - My contribution is a primer on urban runoff management. A modified version of this chapter was later used as a text for the Chesapeake Bay Certified Landscape Professionals program.
