Eric Anderson is a hydrodynamicist who studies surface freshwater interactions and how Earth’s largest lakes and rivers respond to weather and climate conditions. He received his PhD and BS from Case Western Reserve University in Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering. Before joining Mines, he was a physical scientist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration where he led the development of operational hydrodynamic forecast models.
