Reed Maxwell is the Rowlinson Professor of Hydrology in the Geology and Geological Engineering Department and the Director of the Integrated GroundWater Modeling Center (IGWMC) at the Colorado School of Mines (CSM). His research interests are focused on hydrology, particularly scientific questions relating to understanding connections within the hydrologic cycle and how they relate to water quantity and quality under anthropogenic stresses. He has authored more than 100 peer‐reviewed journal articles and teaches classes on integrated hydrology, fluid mechanics, and modeling terrestrial water flow. He leads a research group of 13 graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and staff housed in the IGWMC at CSM. Before joining the faculty at Mines, Maxwell was staff in the Hydrologic Sciences group at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. Maxwell received a Ph.D. in Environmental Water Resources from the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at the University of California, Berkeley.
