Vicky Espinoza

PhD Student

Vicky Espinoza’s doctoral research will address water-energy-food nexus issues by utilizing geospatial and remote sensing techniques with policy application. A central part of her research involves developing coupled hydroclimate and hydropower generation models that will take into consideration climate change effects on California water supplies and consider hydropower operational constraints to provide feasible and realistic pathways for hydropower generation while using “functional flow” regimes to sustain ecosystem functions.
