Dr Marc Muller is assistant professor in hydrology and water resources at the University of Notre Dame. His research focuses on new approaches to collect, analyze and disseminate water information, and study their implications for the sustainable management of water systems in data-scarce regions. Marc did his postdoctoral work at Stanford University (Earth System Science) as a Swiss National Science Foundation Fellow. He undertook his doctoral work in water resources at UC Berkeley (Environmental Engineering) as a Fulbright Science and Technology Fellow, and previously worked as a professional civil engineer in Switzerland. Marc has a MSc (Civil Engineering) and two BSc's (Civil Engineering and Material Science) from EPFL.

Summary of Activities/Interests
I am interested in new approaches to collect, analyze and disseminate water information, and study their implications for the sustainable management of water systems, particularly in data-scarce developing countries. My current research relates to remote sensing, catchment hydrology, stochastic methods, international water disputes, rural electrification, information/data science, game theory, applied statistics and geostatistics.
