Allison Goodwell, PhD
Assistant Professor of Civil Engineering

My name is Allison Goodwell, and I am an assistant professor at the University of Colorado Denver since 2018.    


My research group studies eco-hydrology and water resources using complex systems approaches. These systems are “complex” in that there are many non-linearly interacting variables, and new methods are needed to understand causes and effects. Under a changing climate, increasing populations, and changing demands, it is important to understand dependencies between human and natural systems. 


Please refer to the Research, Teaching, and People tabs of this website for more information about my research and teaching areas.  If you are a motivated and creative prospective graduate student interested in MS or PhD research, please contact me at and include relevant background information.
