Welcome to my site. I am a Professor and Associate Department Head in the Civil Engineering Department at New Mexico State University, where I have been on the faculty since 1990. My areas of specialty are water resources and agricultural engineering, as well as engineering management.
My research focuses primarily on the water resources of the Rio Grande in New Mexico, Texas, Colorado, and the Republic of Mexico. I have also worked on STEM teaching, particularly for students with disabilities, and I am the Director of the New Mexico Alliance for Minority Participation (NMAMP), a statewide program funded by the National Science Foundation , the New Mexico Legislature, and NMSU, aiming to diversify our nation’s STEM workforce.
