ASU's commitment to provide access for all to a high quality education at an R1 institution is admirable. I'm impressed by the faculty, staff and students whom I have had the pleasure to interact with during my stay.
A major component of this first trip to ASU has been centered around learning to use the Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) model working with Dr. Muenich. We will be collaborating with USGS to develop a SWAT model to examine ways to improve water quality and reduce flooding in the Cape Fear River Watershed as part of our research. It's exciting to get some of this work off the ground!
