Chad DrakePh.D. Student
As a member of the Iowa Watersheds Project team, I am performing hydrologic modeling of extreme storm events at the HUC 8 scale of the Upper Cedar River watershed located in north central Iowa to identify areas of high runoff where flood mitigation projects may be most beneficial. My professional interests pertain to the link between water resources and related environmental engineering topics, specifically in natural systems.
I obtained my B.S. in Civil Engineering from Washington State University in May 2012 and my M.S. in Civil & Environmental Engineering from the University of Iowa in May 2014.
