Biography

Jeff Horsburgh is an Assistant Professor in Civil and Environmental Engineering and at the Utah Water Research Laboratory at Utah State University

Teaching Interests

Hydroinformatics

Research Interests

My research interests focus on the development of new technology and application of existing technology in new ways to increase understanding of watershed and environmental processes and enable better prediction, better management, and better stewardship. The areas in which I have focused my research include spatial modeling, data analysis, and information dissemination using Geographic Information Systems (GIS), observation systems and sensor networks, data models and environmental information systems, and surface water hydrology and water quality modeling.
