Biography

Hernan A. Moreno received his Ph.D. from the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment at Arizona State University and was funded jointly by NOAA and the graduate program at ASU. Dr. Moreno’s research focuses on hydrologic modeling, remote sensing applications to hydrology, hydrometeorological forecasting, and climate change effects on water resources. During his graduate studies, Moreno received several awards and fellowships from NCAR and the Graduate Studies Program in the SSEBE at ASU.
