Global environmental and energy issues necessitate the re-engineering of urban environments.

As extreme weather events increase in frequency and strength, the ability to forecast and communicate these pending risks with a high degree of accuracy will play a pivotal role in ensuring that property owners, communities and governments thrive well into the future. Stevens’ research in resilience and sustainability responds to the urgent need for adaptive science and practice-relevant knowledge as we confront significant evidence that anticipated changes will continue to push the climate outside the present temperature range and into a phase of greater variability.

Stevens brings a unique combination of expertise in the multi-scale geophysical fluid flow and biogeochemical fate and transport modeling of legacy and emerging contaminants; in science-based parameterizations; and in data-intensive computing well-suited to coastal urban ocean engineering and other resilience planning.

Energy efficiency and sustainability also pose significant global challenges. Stevens researchers plan and design wind-energy facilities and water-treatment systems; develop green technologies that utilize algae as fuel and filter rainwater; and perform other work that protects environmental quality and reduces human health risks from exposure to environmental contaminants.
