New Stroud scientist to advise US Army Corps on environmental impacts
Date:10/1/2013

Avondale, Pa. Stroud Water Research Center welcomes Melinda Daniels, Ph.D., its newest associate research scientist, who is already making a name for herself and her work at the Center.

Since joining the Center's staff, Daniels has been appointed by Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel to serve on the Environmental Advisory Board to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Her term begins in December.

Moreover, she has secured a lead PI position working under a grant from the National Science Foundation allowing her to investigate water sustainability in the Smoky Hill basin in the U.S. Central Great Plains. The goal of the project is to predict the potential impact of climate change and other activities on water resources, develop a policy optimization strategy, and orchestrate community outreach.

Formerly a professor at Kansas State University, Daniels brings to the Center a wealth of expertise in how landscape-wide physical changes affect river systems. Daniels heads the new Fluvial Geomorphology Group, occupying the laboratory previously overseen by Denis Newbold, research scientist emeritus.

Center Director Bernard Sweeney, Ph.D., commented, "Melinda's work complements and adds a new dimension to the research already under way at Stroud Water Research Center. With her bright mind, unique ideas, and creative approach to freshwater science, she's an excellent addition to our team of scientists."
