Dr. Laurie Huning joined the CSULB Department of Civil Engineering and Construction Engineering Management as an Assistant Professor in Fall 2020. She obtained her Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2017. After graduating, Dr. Huning was a National Science Foundation (NSF) Earth Science postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of California, Irvine.
Dr. Huning’s research aims to better characterize hydrologic processes as they interact with both natural and human systems. She combines remote sensing with physical and statistical approaches to improve hydrologic estimation, water resources management, and extreme event (e.g., droughts, floods) and cascading hazard mitigation across a variety of spatial and temporal scales. Her research addresses global water resources problems by linking the fields of hydrometeorology, climatology, remote sensing, and modeling together.
