Welcome to the research group of Dr. Arturo S.Leon. Our main research interests are on the areas of hydraulic transients (single- and two-phase flows), resilient approaches to flood control, optimal reservoir operation under uncertainty, sustainable stormwater management and modeling, real-time control of complex hydraulic systems, computational hydraulics (CFD ) and physical modeling of hydraulic structures.

For more information about the members of our research group, our research interests, publications, teaching material, codes/softwares, current/past projects, our work in the news and experimental facilities please explore the left tab of this page accordingly.

M.S. and Ph.D. Student Research Opportunities

We are always interested in highly motivated and academically talented Ph.D. students from Applied Mathematics, Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Civil Engineering or other engineering areas. For any research area, the candidates must have an excellent level on programming (C++, Matlab and/or Phyton) and Mathematics. Please send your CV, GRE and TOEFL (if applicable) scores, brief statement of your academic accomplishmemnts, awards, list of publications and PDF of your two most-relevant publications to Dr. Arturo S. Leon (aleon3@uh.edu). Please read more here
