About Meghna Babbar-Sebens

Dr. Meghna Babbar-Sebens is an Associate Professor in Civil and Construction Engineering at Oregon State University in the field of Hydroinformatics. Her research advances innovation in human-computer collaboration, heuristic optimization, data assimilation, and Artificial Intelligence for adaptive and participatory planning and management of water systems. Specifically, she and her students conduct and publish interdisciplinary research aimed at creating novel digital solutions for sustainable and resilient management of water systems. These include approaches that (i) enable human-computer collaboration in participatory design of water management alternatives in watershed communities impacted by climate change, and approaches that (ii) improve design, monitoring, control, and modeling of nature-based solutions for regulation of flow and contaminants in urban and agricultural watersheds. She is also the co-director of the OSU-Benton County Green Stormwater Infrastructure Research (OGSIR) Facility, an Oregon BEST Lab, where field research and performance testing of green infrastructure solutions (also called Low Impact Development technologies) are conducted. She is Chief Editor of ASCE’s Journal of Water Resources Planning and Management.
