Venki Uddameri

Professor of Civil Environmental and Construction Engineering

Texas Tech University

Dr. Uddameri uses integrated field and modeling studies that combine traditional modeling methods based on conservation principles with optimization and statistical frameworks to develop practical decision support systems. His research uses an integrated approach that seeks to combine water quality and quantity aspects to ascertain water availability and develop strategies to improve the water resources resilience in critically stressed arid and semi-arid regions. He is also Director of the Water Resources Center at Texas Tech University.

On his participation in the Ogallala Water Coordinated Agriculture Project, Dr. Uddameri says: "I would like to see the development of state-of-the art models and decision support tools that make best use of available data and that help decision makers and other stakeholders in the region make decisions that are scientifically-credible, risk-informed and help find creative ways to conserve, augment and enhance water resources in the High Plains region."
