Michelle Hummel, natural hazards science adviser for Eos


Michelle Hummel is an assistant professor of Water Resources in the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Texas at Arlington. She specializes in the development of numerical models to simulate flood hazards driven by extreme events and long-term sea-level rise and uses these models to quantify impacts on populations and critical infrastructure systems. She has previously studied regional patterns of flood exposure due to sea-level rise in the San Francisco Bay Area, considering community-level demographics and infrastructure dependencies. Michelle holds a B.S. degree in civil engineering from Case Western Reserve University and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in environmental engineering from the University of California, Berkeley.
