Climate change’s effects on water in the Houston area—from droughts to flooding—has been a key consideration in some of Stephanie Glenn’s most recent work.

Glenn has worked with the Houston Advanced Research Center since 2003,

specializing in ecology and hydrology. She currently serves as the organization’s hydrology and watersheds program director, and she has worked with the Greater Houston Flood Mitigation Consortium to help identify steps to mitigate the effects of flooding locally.


We’re looking at more intense and more frequent storms, and so, as a region, we’re going to need to think about that when we’re planning.
