Aditi S. Bhaskar

Associate Professor, Civil and Environmental Engineering

Aditi BhaskarBhaskar specializes in changes to hydrologic systems from urban development, with a focus on interactions between groundwater, surface water, and engineered stormwater and water distribution systems. Bhaskar received a Sc.B. in geology-physics/math from Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, and a Ph.D. in environmental engineering from University of Maryland, Baltimore County. She was a graduate trainee of the National Science Foundation Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship (IGERT) in “Water in the Urban Environment” at UMBC. Bhaskar was then awarded a National Science Foundation Earth Sciences Postdoctoral Fellowship, which took her to the Eastern Geographic Science Center at the U.S. Geological Survey in Reston, Virginia, before joining CSU.
