Biography

Dr. Null uses her background in water resources systems analysis and physical geography to monitor and mathematically model processes and interactions of built and natural water resources systems. Systems analysis, mathematical modeling and field studies are the methods she uses to improve understanding of systems and explore promising solutions to problems. Dr. Null's main research interests are:

  • systems modeling to quantify water supply and aquatic habitat tradeoffs,
  • monitoring and modeling managed environmental water for maximum environmental benefit, and 
  • predicting climate change effects on hydrology, water quality, and aquatic habitat to anticipate change and identify promising adaptation strategies
