Edward D. Tiernan

Research Assistant
University of Texas at Austin

My name is Edward Tiernan, I am a Master's student at the University of Texas at Austin working with Dr. Ben R. Hodges in collaboration with the National Center for Infrastructure Management and Modeling (NCIMM). My undergraduate studies were in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the University of Virginia in Charlottesville, VA. This background cultivated in me an interest in hydrology and system modeling, an interest that Dr Hodges work with NCIMM revamping and upgrading the Stormwater Management Model (SWMM) allowed me to persue. The primary goal of NCIMM is to develop the next generation of SWMM and EPANET, two leading hydrologic and infrastructure managment models, with special emphasis on automating the model workflows. My research at UT Austin developing SWMMCALPY, an automated SWMM calibration tool written in python, is directly in line with the overall NCIMM objectives.
