Water Summit Luncheon
American NAF-Fulbright Fellow, Jack Hogan, who is currently studying Flood Managment at TU Delft in the Netherlands, has been invited to participate in the Water Summit at the White House on March 22, 2016. We'd like to celebrate this momentous event and give him the occasion to share his experiences with the NAF Community in DC.
About the Speaker
Jack Hogan holds a BSc in Environmental Science and Engineering from the University of California, Los Angeles. He's been a civil Engineer in the US Army Corps of Engineers in San Francisco since 2009 where he's taken on the roles of Team Leader and Program Manager. At TU Delft he's examining Dutch adaptation strategies for improving flood risk management in the face of climate change for the purpose of providing new critical information for adaptation efforts in California. The overall research goal is to investigate optimal climate change adaption strategies for improving flood resiliency in delta watersheds and to identify opportunities for the implementation of these measures in California and the Netherlands. Under the advising of Professor S.N. (Bas) Jonkman, Jack collaborates with senior researchers of flood risk management at TU Delft and the Netherlands' Ministry of Water Management (Rijkswaterstaat). After returning to the U.S. he plans to pursue opportunities for applying his research through an advisory level position in California. His goal is to share this knowledge and develop additional channels for exchange between the Dutch and the US Flood risk management communities.
