Brett Sanders Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Urban Planning and Public Policy at the University of California, Irvine. He is an expert in computer algorithms for flood and erosion simulation, and recent research has been directed at using computer visualizations of flooding to improve flood awareness and enhance support of decision-making needs. He also studies the intersection between sediment management and flood risk, particularly under accelerating sea level rise where coastlines face a sediment deficit that risks increasing flood damage.
