Dr. Sanjay Tewari is a prominent voice on Resiliency of Infrastructure and Flood Delineation, and salinization of groundwater. He has authored several technical publications related to Resiliency of Infrastructure. In addition to being a Senior Consultant at AARC, he is an Assistant Professor at Missouri University of Science and Technology (S&T). Before joining S&T, Dr. Tewari worked as an Assistant Professor at Louisiana Tech University. His research is focused on solving challenges associated with water and wastewater by applying electrochemistry such as capacitive deionization and electrokinetics. In addition, he has used GIS for identifying and mapping highly corrosive areas for metal pipes and critical transportation infrastructure most likely to be impacted by land subsidence and sea-level rise. He serves as an Advisor on coastal threat characterization, climate change, hydrological modeling, and risk and resilience analysis.
