We are always looking to connect with students interested in the hydrology of working landscapes. Please contact me with email (email@example.com) to explore possibilities.
Dr. Steve Lyon was born and raised in Navarre, Ohio. He attended Purdue University and graduated with a BSc in Agricultural and Biological Engineering. Steve completed his MSc and PhD both in Biological and Environmental Engineering at Cornell University looking at how we incorporate the spatial structure of shallow water tables into hydrology. Dr. Lyon continued with postdoctoral research at the University of Arizona focusing on the evolution of land-water interaction in space and time. He joined the Department of Physical Geography at Stockholm University in 2008 promoting to Full Professor in 2016. While maintaining this affiliation, Steve worked with The Nature Conservancy as a Freshwater and Conservation Scientist.
Since August 2019, Dr. Lyon has joined the faculty in the School of Environment and Natural Resources at Ohio State University as an Associate Professor in Hydrology and Water Resources.
Can we characterize how landscapes and water interact across scales? Unraveling these feedbacks has implications for the viability of strategies associated with the current and future sustainability of coupled terrestrial and aquatic systems – particularly those targeting improved water quality.
Dr. Lyon’s research uses innovative approaches to characterize hydrological processes and water quality across scales to improve resource management in the face of coupled climate and land-use change. He works at the intersection of water chemistry and hydrometric observations often leveraging geographical information systems, remote sensing products, and geostatistical approaches. Integral here is working with hydrological and natural resources models for hypothesis testing connected to real-world data.
