Dr. Matthew Deitch
Assistant Professor, Watershed Management
After completing a PhD and post-doc at the University of California, Berkeley in 2008, Matthew directed a hydrology program for a nonprofit environmental science firm where he partnered with regulatory agencies and agricultural producers to devise water management practices to meet agricultural needs and maintain environmental uses. His research interests include ecological implications of water management at reach- and catchment-scales, as well as how science can inform policy to advance sustainable water resource management. His research has been used to develop new policies and practices to improve aquatic ecosystem sustainability in his primary study area.
