McDonald Hydrology

The McDonald Hydrology research group at Marquette University seeks to develop novel methods to design, manage, and monitor stormwater infrastructure under changing land use patterns and climate variability. Our work also leverages emerging technologies to develop a greater understanding of stormwater systems and improve management efforts. We are always interested in motivated postdoctoral, graduate and undergraduate students to join our lab. See current opportunities below.
