“Implications of Future Climate Scenarios for Water Availability in the Middle Rio Grande Basin”
Dr. Ali Mirchi
Oklahoma State University
Please join Dr. Ali Mirchi of Oklahoma State University (OSU) as he presents Implications of Future Climate Scenarios for Water Availability in the Middle Rio Grande Basin.
Dr. Ali Mirchi is an Assistant Professor of Water ResourcesEngineering in the Department of Biosystems and Agricultural Engineering at OSU. He holds a PhD in civil/water resources engineering from Michigan Technological University.
He applies systems modeling and analysis techniques, including system dynamics simulation, hydro-economic optimization and watershed hydrologic modeling to advance understanding of coupled human-natural systems at different scales. His research focuses on water resources planning and management to derive policy insights that promote water sustainability. Dr. Mirchi is currently working on research projects in the southwestern U.S. and northeastern Tunisia, investigating adaptive water resources management strategies in the face of population growth, competing demands, and climatic extremes.
