Bio

Jacob is a doctoral student in the Margulis Research Group in the Civil and Environmental Engineering department. Before coming to UCLA, he completed an undergraduate degree in civil and environmental engineering at the University of Maryland. Jacob is researching river flows in large river systems with the goal of advancing our capacity to observe and predict river flows using remote sensing measurements. Much of his research focuses on finding ways to use radar measurements from the upcoming NASA/CNES Surface Water and Ocean Topography (SWOT) satellite, which is scheduled to launch in 2021.
