Dear HSAC students,
Many of you have probably seen the general annoucement of the Smallwood Lecture on Feb 11th, but I wanted to extend you all a more special invitation. Dr. Rodriguez-Iturbe from Princeton University will be on campus for a little over a day, and will have an opportunity to meet with interested HSAC grad students on Rogers 122, Feb 11, from 9:30-noon. Please plan to attend. His seminar will be in 209 Emerson Alumni Hall from 3:00 to 5:00 on that same day. Please remember that one of the activities of your HSAC curriculum is regular attendance to these Smallwood Lectures organized by the Water Institute.
For those that don't know him, Dr. Rodriguez-Iturbe is the recipient of the 1998 Horton Medal in hydrology, 2002 Stockholm Water Prize, and the 2009 William Bowie Medal. His recent work has been at the interface of ecology and hydrology, which will be the subject of his lecture. I encourage you all to attend and participate to the extent that you can. The abstract of his talk is attached.
I look forward to seeing you at his Seminar. Best regards,
Rafael Munoz-Carpena, Ph.D.
