The Kasprzyk Research Group focuses on three main domain areas, solving problems using simulation modeling, evolutionary algorithm search, model diagnostics, interactive visualizations, and stakeholder engagement:
- Water resources planning and management: finding innovative solutions to water supply systems that face multiple conflicting objectives
- Decision making under uncertainty: advancing new decision support techniques to better handle different types of uncertainty
- Environmental engineering applications: using quantitative models of different domains (e.g., air quality assessment, water treatment plants) to solve integrated decision problems
Here is a partial list of some folks that I have had the pleasure of working with:
- Paul Block, University of Wisconsin – Madison. Paul and I are working on hydrologic forecasting and multi-objective planning for water markets in Chile.
- Jon Herman, University of California Davis. Jon and I collaborate on research that seeks to advance multiobjective optimization and model diagnostics.
- Emil Laftchiev, Mitsubishi Electric Research Lab. Emil provides expertise in data science and signal processing.
- Abbie Liel, University of Colorado Boulder. Abbie and I are working to use many objective optimization to improve the structural performance and sustainability of building systems under multiple hazards.
- Ben Livneh, University of Colorado Boulder. Ben and I have collaborated on Liz Houle’s research, where we use model diagnostics to explore the fidelity of snow models. We are also working on other projects including water quality modeling under extreme events for drinking water quality, and modeling the hydrology of Java Island, Indonesia with R. Balaji.
- Roseanna Neupauer, University of Colorado Boulder. Roseanna and I co-advised Dr. Amy Piscopo, who worked on innovative techniques for groundwater remediation. We are also involved in other collaborative projects related to systems approaches to groundwater problems.
- Fernando Rosario-Ortiz, University of Colorado Boulder. Fernando and I collaborate on improving water quality under extreme events.
- Ashlynn Stillwell, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Ashlynn and I are working on water resources planning within the water-energy nexus.
- Wil Srubar, University of Colorado Boulder. Wil and I have an NSF funded project on the design of engineered material systems.
- Edith Zagona, Center for Advanced Decision Support for Water and Environmental Systems and University of Colorado Boulder. Edie and I have worked together on water resources planning and management problems using RiverWare.
