Dr. Ram Neupane collects water samples and conducts measurements of water quality indicators.

WACO, Texas (May 1, 2019) – Ram Neupane, Ph.D., has recently accepted a position as Coastal Hydrologist (Hydrologist III) with the Texas Water Development Board (TWDB), the state agency charged with collecting and disseminating water-related data, assisting with regional planning, and preparing the state overall plan for development of water resources.

A native of Nepal, Neupane carried out his doctoral work at Baylor under the mentorship of TIE3s fellows Joseph White, Ph.D., and Peter Allen, Ph.D.

After completing his Ph.D. in 2014, Neupane worked as a postdoctoral research associate at South Dakota State University for nearly two years, followed by about three years as a postdoctoral research fellow at Indiana University Bloomington, where his research was focused on simulating contemporary and future streamflow and stream temperature data for all major watersheds of the United States.

At TWDB, Neupane works on the application of hydrologic models in support of freshwater inflow estimates for the Texas bays and estuaries as well as conducts scientific analysis of hydrologic data in support of environmental flows and water resources planning.

Please join TIE3s in congratulating Neupane for his many accomplishments and for building a career that advances the mission of The Institute of Ecological, Earth and Environmental Sciences.
