Adam Schreiner- McGraw

I am a postdoctoral scholar at the University of California Riverside. I obtained my PhD from Arizona State University studying ecohydrological controls on focused groundwater recharge. My background is primarily in observational hydrology with expertise in environmental sensor networks, eddy covariance measurements, cosmic-ray neutron soil moisture sampling, and hydrologic modeling. My scientific philosophy is to combine high-resolution hydrologic observations with state-of-the-art watershed models to build deep understandings of the problems that I study. I am motivated by scientific questions that aim to improve our ability to predict and manage water resources in the future, particularly in water-stressed regions. This includes the hydrologic impacts of land cover change and climate change, and connections between the hydrologic cycle and ecology, or ecohydrology. My main project focuses on understanding surface-groundwater interactions in the California Central Valley within the context of climate change.
