We seek someone interested in developing and applying machine learning techniques to pressing problems related to water security. In particular, your research will include:
 

  • Building machine learning models (e.g. LSTMs, Transformers) for streamflow and flood prediction
  • Incorporating novel data sources to capture human impacts on watersheds and directly to rivers into your models
  • Exploring techniques for building models that incorporate known physical principles
  • Developing and deploying methods for understanding what your models learned


This position provides an opportunity to apply your skills toward a variety of impactful problems. Although your project will focus on streamflow prediction, domain-specific knowledge (e.g. hydrology, climate and/or earth sciences) is not required. Depending on your interests and time, you may have opportunities to contribute to other projects as well, including for example modeling mosquito-borne diseases, mapping permafrost presence with ML, or estimating water quality from remotely-sensed images. Our teams will provide context, background, and guidance as you familiarize yourself with the domain-specific applications. While the overall research goals for these projects have been established, there is significant flexibility in the way these goals can be achieved, and novel approaches are encouraged.
