Eric has 19 years of water resources engineering experience, both in private industry as a consulting engineer and in academia as a researcher and educator. He has specific expertise in water resources planning and management, with a focus on water supply, hydrology, geospatial technology, hydroinformatics, environmental flows, geographic information systems (GIS), and sustainability. Eric has been involved in water supply analyses and other studies and plans for federal, state, municipal, and private clients.
Currently, Eric is leading an ongoing study supported by the Electric Power Research Institute on “Potential Water-Related Risks Associated with Climate Change to the Electric Power Industry.” The power industry is heavily reliant on sustainable and consistent access to water resources, so understanding the risks associated with the changing climate is one of their priority issues.
Before joining Stantec, Eric was a faculty member and researcher at the University of Texas at Austin. When he isn’t applying his skills to big water questions, you might find Eric training for and racing long-distance triathlons (Ironman), enjoying the outdoors, or spending time with his wife and their new baby.
