We invite discussion and collaboration on these topics and any others. Those interested in undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate research opportunities should feel free to contact us about possible openings. Our studies, datasets, and codes can be made available upon request.

NOTE: We are currently looking for talented undergraduate, masters, and PhD students. All are welcome to apply but those with strong backgrounds in hydrology or atmospheric sciences are particularly encouraged. Experience in computer programming and data analysis, or a keen willingness to learn these skills, is critical.


Please contact Dr. Wright if you are interested in applying or would like to find more information.
