KNOWLEDGE INTEGRATION FOR LONG-TERM GROUNDWATER MANAGEMENT
Professor Minsker’s current research investigates improved methods for modeling complex environmental systems so that informed management-level decisions can be made under conditions of uncertainty. During her Center appointment, she will develop a methodology for using knowledge-discovery techniques to integrate all available data and models and improve methods for guiding long-term monitoring, operations, and stewardship of hazardous waste sites. The methodology will be developed and demonstrated through in-depth collaborations with Argonne National Laboratory, DHI Water and Environment, and the National Center for Supercomputing Applications.
