Associate Professor • Hydrology, Water Resources & Environmental Fluid Mechanics • Civil Systems

Dr. Kasprzyk’s research group focuses on how to generate new plans for engineering systems, evaluate their performance, visualize trade-offs between multiple objectives and negotiate robust alternatives. The group’s research combines tools from computer science, engineering, economics and the natural sciences. Specifically, the research contributes novel applications of multiobjective evolutionary algorithms (MOEAs), quantitative models and high-performance computing. At CADSWES, Dr. Kasprzyk has participated in a multi-year effort to use MOEAs and bottom-up decision making techniques to improve planning in the Colorado River Basin.

Classes he teaches: graduate Water Resources Engineering (CVEN 5423, Fall semesters); undergraduate Hydrology (CVEN 4333, Spring semesters) and graduate Water Resources Systems and Management (CVEN 5393, Spring semesters). Both CVEN 5423 and 5393 include RiverWare modules.
