My featured awards
Research Assistant Professor, Civil Engineering - Center for Environmental Resource Management (CERM)

Dr. Mirchi has a joint appointment with the Department of Civil Engineering and the Center for Environmental Resource Management. He holds a Ph.D. in Civil/Water Resources Engineering from Michigan Technological University, a Master’s in Water Resources from Lund University, and a B.S. in Civil/Water Engineering from the University of Tabriz. His research primarily focuses on water resources planning and management, hydrologic engineering, and environmental systems modeling, to inform resource management frameworks, and derive policy insights that promote sustainability. He applies systems thinking, systems analysis techniques, geographic information systems (GIS), simulation, and optimization modeling to advance understanding of coupled human-natural systems at different scales. Dr. Mirchi is currently working on two large, interdisciplinary research projects in the Rio Grande region and south Florida, U.S.A., investigating water resources management strategies in the face of continuous growth, competing demands, and climate change.
