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.
- Introduction to Hydrometeorology
- Watershed System Modeling
Former Postdoctoral Fellow (2019-2022)
Improvement of water cycle prediction in the national water model through regional calibration, meteorological forcing improvements, and coastal coupling; Complex interactions between water cycle, pollutant transport, agriculture activities, ecosystem behaviors and their social-economic impacts, in responding to different climate and human activity forcing.

Izzy graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a BS in Civil and Environmental Engineering. At UC Berkeley she did research in fluid mechanics focusing on particle transport in multi-zone systems and energy generation using hydrofoils. At the present, her research interests include hydrodynamic ice studies and modeling, fluid mechanics, limnology, climate change and surface hydrology.
Visiting Scholar, 2023 - present
Gabriella got her BS and MS degrees in civil engineering at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics in Hungary, where she is a PhD student focusing on turbulent exchange processes at the air-water interface and hydro- and thermodynamics of shallow lakes including numerical modeling. She is currently a Fulbright visiting student researcher at the Colorado School of Mines investigating ice formation and dynamics in lakes.
