Dr. Marston's research aims to provide new understanding and solutions towards sustainable water resources management. He is particularly interested in investigating the complex ways in which society depends on and manages water through infrastructure, trade, and policy. Dr. Marston's research is driven by questions such as, How does climate and socio-economic change impact water resources? How and where is water used within the economy? What are the environmental consequences associated with our patterns of economic production and consumption? To answer these questions, his research group draws on approaches and concepts from engineering, hydrology, computer science, and economics.
