Sarah Fletcher

Assistant Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering and Center Fellow at the Woods Institute for the Environment
The Fletcher lab aims to advance water resources management to promote resilient and equitable responses to a changing world. We study water resources and climate change adaptation from a socio-technical systems perspective. Research integrates methods from hydrology, policy analysis, and data science to inform decision-making around critical environmental challenges. Recent and planned projects include: adaptive and modular water infrastructure planning under uncertainty; resilient and sustainable drought planning; integrated climate mitigation and adaptation planning; and integrating equity and justice measures into water resource systems analysis.
