Welcome to our research group!
We investigate a range of topics in hydrology, climate, and atmospheric sciences that are useful to support engineering applications. More specifically, we focus on statistical characterization of hydrologic variables, development of downscaling methods, watershed modeling, evaluation of climate change impacts on water resources and infrastructure, and food-water-energy nexus.
We pursue an interdisciplinary approach through collaborations with faculty at ASU and other institutions. We are part of the School of Sustainable Engineering and the Built Environment, the Metis Center for Infrastructure and Sustainable Engineering, and the Global Security Initiative at ASU. Our students are part of graduate programs in Hydrosystems Engineering and Environmental Engineering.

INFEWS/T2: Flexible Model Compositions and Visual Representations for Planning and Policy Decisions at the Sub-regional level of the food-energy-water nexus, NSF INFEWS program. Main goal: develop basic interdisciplinary scientific understanding of food, energy, and water system dynamics to inform an integrated modeling, visualization, and decision support infrastructure for comprehensive FEW systems. Mascaro’s research will be focused on the development of a multi-resolution integrated modeling framework that explicitly captures the feedbacks among food, energy and water sectors.
Ensemble Generation of Downscaled Soil Moisture from Satellite Observations, NASA Terrestrial Hydrology program. Main goal: calibrate a statistical downscaling model for generating high-resolution soil moisture fields from coarse satellite data using aircraft-based data collected during intensive field campaigns, as well as high-resolution (10 to 100 m) soil moisture fields generated by a distributed hydrologic model applied to a set of study basins.
FloodAware is a multi-university project to assess the effectiveness of several real-time flood detection, reporting, and communication technologies for cities and local communities. The project is supported by the National Science Foundation’s Smart and Connected Communities program (award 1831475). See the project website for additional information.
