Lamisa Malik (supervisor: Nandita Basu) is a PhD student in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering. She holds bachelors and masters degree in Water Resources Engineering.
Her current research focuses on modeling and analysis of long-term effect of nutrients on watersheds and surrounding water-bodies associated with Lake Erie, using a process-based model. She hopes the quantification of legacy phosphorus in the Lake Erie basin will help evaluate the achievability of 40% phosphorus reduction goals outlined by the Great Lakes Water Quality Agreement, and provide realistic recommendations towards watershed nutrient management.
Her additional research interests are in hydraulics and sediment transport. She has four years of undergraduate teaching experience in the field of water resources engineering.
