Better Managing California's Droughts with Data, Modeling, and People, Apr 22

Wednesday, April 22, 2015

Jay Lund is a Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at UC Davis. His research is focused on systems analysis in water resources and environment planning and management.

This seminar is also part of our Resilience Seminar Series. The emergence of wireless sensors and smartphones have created opportunities to understand and better manage —in real-time— the behavior of critical infrastructures, including their response to disruptive events. Ongoing resiliency research at CITRIS involves improving the capacity of built infrastructure, such as our water systems, buildings, cybersecurity, and transportation, to withstand natural disasters, as well as helping communities prepare for and recover from major disruptions.

This series is free and open to the public and sponsored by The Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS), the Institute of Transportation Studies (ITS) and The Team for Research in Ubiquitous Secure Technology (TRUST).

Live broadcast at Ask questions live on Twitter: #CITRISRE. All talks may be viewed on our YouTube channel

The schedule for the semester can be found on the CITRIS site.
