Expert highlight: Reed Maxwell, on water resources

June 11, 2023

Princeton hydrologist Reed Maxwell is an expert on groundwater, surface water, snow and vegetation – and how they interact. He combines computational modeling with field observations and remote sensing to understand and predict freshwater availability. He directs the Integrated GroundWater Modeling Center and is part of a team from many institutions using artificial intelligence to improve groundwater forecasting.

Prof. Maxwell can speak on:

  • Drought and shifting water resources in the face of climate change, especially in the American Wes
  • Modeling and the water cycle, water availability and water quality at local, regional and continental scales
  • Water policy
  • Using machine learning to analyze large datasets to inform water management and food production
