Cesar Ricardo Castillo

Ph.D. Candidate

Research Interests

My dissertation research focuses on assessing hydrologic and geomorphic connectivity within the Mission River Floodplain on the Coastal Bend of Texas. I use a variety of methods to determine floodplain connectivity that includes geomorphometric analysis, hydraulic modeling, remote sensing, and field-based data collection.
