Biography

Prof. Enrique R. Vivoni received his B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He holds a joint appointment as a Professor in the School of Earth and Space Exploration and the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment at Arizona State University. His research focuses on water, climate and ecosystem processes and interactions with sustainability and management, with a specific emphasis on semiarid and arid regions of the North America. Over the course of his career, Dr. Vivoni has established long-term research collaborations on topics related to advancing numerical models, water resources management, climate change and sociopolitical interactions with natural resources. Dr. Vivoni is also involved in training, outreach and stakeholder engagement activities as related to technology transfer and the use of scientific knowledge for improving decision-making processes. He has won a number of national awards, including the Leopold Leadership Fellowship, Huber Prize for Civil Engineering Research and the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers.

  • Stakeholder engagement and decision making support
Research Group

Our research group at Arizona State University (Hydrologic Science, Engineering & Sustainability) studies hydrological processes in natural and urban environments and their interactions with ecological, atmospheric and geomorphic phenomenon. We are part of the School of Earth and Space Exploration (SESE), Julie Anne Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability (GIOS) and the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment (SSEBE). Thus, we are integrating scientificengineering and sustainability principles in water resources. Our students are part of graduate programs in Hydrosystems Engineering, Environmental Engineering and Geological Sciences.
