Research Opportunities
for Students


David's C.V.


David E. Rosenberg's work uses systems analysis -- simulation and optimization modeling and hydroinformatics -- to improve the planning, design, and operation of water systems. His work spans spatial scales from individual users (such as households) to transboundary river basins and integrates hydrological, engineering, economic, environmental, and institutional system aspects and uncertainties to mathematically model and inform water management. Research projects in the Middle East, California, and Utah include:


  1. Systems modeling
  2. Managing water for the environment
  3. Water conservation,
  4. Operations

Work is principally the effort of current and former students. We are also now sharing our work in public model & code repositories so others can download and use these tools and further the practice of #OpenScience.
