Professional Interests

My two cents


  • Green stormwater infrastructure
  • Geographic Information System (GIS) applications in water, wastewater, and stormwater systems
  • Modeling of water, wastewater, stormwater, and river systems
  • Wet weather overflow facility plans for Combined Sewer Overflow (CSO) and Sanitary Sewer Overflow (SSO) systems
  • Stormwater management
  • Watershed approach to stormwater and wastewater management
  • Teaching and training
  • Software development 

  • Sense of accomplishment helping needy people or communities is much more profound than the rewards of compensated employment.
  • Working hard is noble but workaholic fatigue is counterproductive and unhealthy. Exhausted workers cannot challenge status quo and think outside the box, or become innovators and inventors. 

  • Fishing, kite flying, volunteer work, international travel, and writing
