Hello, my name is Daniel J. Brogan. I grew up in rural Wisconsin and spent most of my youth exploring the outdoors. In 2011 I completed a B.S.
degree in Physics and
Civil & Environmental Engineering
from the University of Wisconsin - La Crosse and Madison, respectively. That summer I had the honor of working
with Inter-Fluve Inc. as a hydraulic engineer intern, which intrigued me to continue
The following year I began graduate school at Colorado State University (CSU) and in
2014 I completed my M.S. in Civil & Environmental Engineering
[Thesis]. Continuing my research in the Hydraulic Engineering, Stream Restoration, and River Mechanics program
at CSU, I defended my PhD in fall 2018. My particular interests emphasize the
impacts of land disturbance (e.g. wildfire, floods, dam removal, clear-cutting, and urbanization) on rivers and rely on concepts in fluvial
geomorphology, sediment transport, hydraulics, and hydrology. My dissertation was titled Spatial and temporal channel changes across the watershed scale following wildfire and floods. For more information about my research, please view my
Research page. For a link to my full CV, please click here.
