As Hydrologist, Austin will support the computer and modeling activities. Austin has a B.S. and M.S. in geography from the University of Alabama; his undergraduate minor was in Computer Science. Austin participated in the 2019 Summer Institute and was set to be a student course coordinator in 2020 before we cancelled the Institute last year. Austin most recently was a student employee at the National Water Center. Much of Austin’s graduate work focused on flood inundation depth estimation (see this, for example). Austin is well acquainted with many of our stakeholders, and his connections at the National Water Center will be an asset.
