Dr. Ibrahim Mohammed, Post-doctoral fellow
Dr. Mohammed's research is focused on the impacts of climate and land use change on river flow regime in Vermont, and is part of the Vermont EPSCoR Regional Adaptation to Climate Change (RACC) project. Currently, Dr. Mohammed is developing distributed watershed models that are coupled to agent-based models of land use change as part of an integrated assessment model. The goal of the research is to understand the feedbacks and linkages between climate, hydrology, and society. In this photo, Ibrahim is seen standing beside the USGS river flow gauge on the Mad River at Moretown, Vermont.
Jody Stryker, PhD candidate
Ms. Stryker's research is focused on modeling of the streambank sediment addition into rivers during high flow events as part of the Vermont EPSCoR RACC project. Her field site is in the Mad River Valley. Jody also studied surface hydrology controls of transient Anopheles gambiae mosquito habitat in Asendabo, Ethiopia to investigate the linkage between climate, vegetation, and malaria transmission. When she is not working, Jody can be found jumping out of airplanes. In this photo, she is seen installing time domain reflectometry probes to measure soil moisture.
Justin Guilbert, PhD candidate
Mr. Guilbert's research seeks to characterize the nature of nonstationarity in river flows. This work involves a detailed study of the contributions of various hydrological processes to nonstationarity in flow, such as soil moisture and snowpack sensitivity to warming temperatures and the changing intensities and depths of extreme precipitation. Justin is part of the Vermont EPSCoR RACC project. Justin is an avid skier, kayaker and mountain biker, and in this photo he is seen scaling Mount Mansfield, Vermont.
Cam White, MS student
Mr. White's research focus is on the nature of precipitation changes in Vermont, with a particular focus on changes in spatial patterns of precipitation and their hydrological implications.
