Rina Schumer, PhD

Desert Research Institute, Office of Education
Dr. Schumer's primary research interests involve stochastic models for environmental processes. She uses mathematical models to enhance understanding of subsurface transport in porous and fractured media, surface-subsurface exchange, sediment transport, as well as geomorphic processes and their signature in the geologic record. Using her background in applied mathematics, she also has projects that employ optimization techniques, time series analysis, extreme value theory, and probability and statistics. Dr. Schumer’s research areas include:  Hydrology/Hydrogeology, Stochastic Processes, Optimization, Extreme Value Theory, Environmental Transport Processes, Statistical Hydrology, Stratigraphy and Geomorphology.
