Sanders’ research group specializes in the development of innovative algorithms for flow and transport in river and coastal systems and the integration of information technologies to create more accurate and efficient simulation tools. Flooding and erosion hazards are the primary focus of current research, particularly coastal flooding and urban flooding. Other interests include surface water quality, low impact development impacts on hydrology, dam-break flooding, aerial and terrestrial lidar scanning, geographical information systems, high performance computing, simulation tools for decision-making.
