Simulating Hydrologic Dynamics in Calcareous Soils with a Surficial Aquifer System
Dr. Haimanote Bayabil is an Assistant Professor of Water Resources in the Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering at the University of Florida. He conducts research and extension programs at the Tropical Research and Education Center in Homestead, Florida. His work focuses on developing data-driven and practical water management decision-support tools by integrating data from different sources, including ground, proximal, and UAB-based sensors, crop simulation, hydrologic, and machine learning models with a goal of conserving freshwater resources, protecting water quality, and improve plant growth and yield. He has co-authored over 58 refereed publications in international journals and 21 peer-reviewed extension fact sheets cited over 1,370 times (G-scholar). In the last five years, he has chaired five graduate students (3 Ph.D. and 2 MS).
