Dr. Michelle Hummel is an assistant professor of water resources in the department of civil engineering at the University of Texas at Arlington. Her research focuses broadly on understanding how coupled human-natural systems respond to climate-driven disturbances in coastal regions. She has developed and applied numerical models to study how shoreline management decisions affect estuarine hydrodynamics and flooding and to quantify impacts on populations and interdependent critical infrastructure systems.
