Ricardo MantillaAssistant Research Engineer
I am an associate research engineer at IIHR—Hydroscience & Engineering at the University of Iowa. My research interests are in surface hydrology. I began working at IIHR just a few months before Eastern Iowa’s historic floods in 2008.
At the Iowa Flood Center, I am currently working with Director Witold Krajewski and his team to develop models to help predict and forecast the timing and magnitude of flood events. We are conducting research and collecting data in multiple watersheds across the state of Iowa to help develop these models.
