Tyler Smith Appointed Assistant Professor of Civil & Environmental Engineering at Clarkson University
Tyler J. Smith has been appointed assistant professor of civil & environmental engineering at Clarkson University.
He received his bachelor of science degree in civil engineering and a bio-resources engineering option with honors, his master of science degree in civil engineering, and his doctoral degree in ecology and environmental sciences, all from Montana State University.
Before coming to Clarkson, he was a research assistant at Montana State University, working in the Watershed Analysis Lab. Prior to that, he was a visiting scholar and a research assistant at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia, where he studied Australian watersheds.
Smith’s research interests are hydrology, predictive hydrologic modeling (including the use of Bayesian statistical techniques), and integrative research approaches. His dissertation was on hydrologic modeling.
He has taught watershed analysis courses and engineering hydrology. He also has co-written articles in professional journals and made many presentations about his area of research.
His honors include winning several scholarships and fellowships. Additionally, he was awarded second place for his Ph.D. student presentation from the American Water Resources Association, and he twice received the Outstanding Student Paper Award -- Hydrology Section, from the American Geophysical Union.
He is a member of the American Geophysical Union, American Water Resources Association, Modeling and Simulation Society of Australia and New Zealand, Tau Beta Pi engineering honor society, and Chi Epsilon national honor society of civil engineering.
Clarkson University launches leaders into the global economy. One in five alumni already leads as a CEO, VP or equivalent senior executive of a company. Located just outside the Adirondack Park in Potsdam, N.Y., Clarkson is a nationally recognized research university for undergraduates with select graduate programs in signature areas of academic excellence directed toward the world’s pressing issues. Through 50 rigorous programs of study in engineering, business, arts, sciences and health sciences, the entire learning-living community spans boundaries across disciplines, nations and cultures to build powers of observation, challenge the status quo, and connect discovery and engineering innovation with enterprise.
