Lejo Flores received his B.S and M.S. in Civil Engineering from Colorado State University in 2001 and 2003, respectively. He then enrolled in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at MIT and received his Ph.D. in Hydrology in 2009. After a brief postdoc at MIT he began as an Assistant Professor at Boise State University in the Department of Geosciences in late 2009 and was promoted to Associate Professor in 2014. Research focus areas include modeling coupled human and natural systems to quantify feedbacks between land management and regional hydroclimate and use of remote sensing data to improve model-based ecohydrologic prediction.  He is serves as an associate editor for the Journal of Hydrometeorology and co-chairs the AGU Hydrology Section Remote Sensing Technical Committee. He was elected as co-chair of the CSDMS Critical Zone Focus Research Group in October 2014.

CSDMS Executive Committee

The Executive Committee (executive committee chair, steering committee chair and the working group chairs) is the primary decision-making body of the CSDMS, and meets twice a year to approve the annual science plan, the semi-annual reports, the management plan, budget, partner membership, and other day-to-day issues that arise in the running of the CSDMS. The Executive Committee also develops the By-Laws and Operational Procedures, to be approved by the Steering Committee. The Executive Committee develops and implements the 5-year Strategic Plan.

The Executive Committee further:

  1. Reviews proposals from Working Groups for development that are within the priorities of the Annual Science Plan and CSDMS mission;
  2. Ensures that CSDMS develops and maintains the capability to support collaborative proposals;
  3. Reviews the ongoing CSDMS business operations through regular meetings, teleconferences, AccessGrid sessions, electronic mail, etc.
  4. Ensures scientific progress in multiple areas of landscape-basin evolution (LBE) by providing the computational infrastructure needed for improved modeling;
  5. Ensures the connection of LBE research with related scientific thrusts of scientific computing and Geoinformatics through the establishment of strategic partnerships, and
  6. Ensures transparency of governance and intellectual involvement of community via reasonable criteria for partner membership and a mechanism that allows community input.



CSDMS Steering Committee

The CSDMS Steering Committee (SC) is comprised of 10 members: 8 selected by the EC to represent the spectrum of relevant Earth science and computational disciplines, and 2 selected by Partner Membership. The cognizant NSF program officer or his/her designate, and the Executive Director or his/her designate, serve as ex officio members of the SC. During SC meetings, there may be occasions when these ex officio members would exclude themselves from discussions.

The Steering Committee meets once a year to assess the competing objectives and needs of the CSDMS; will comment on the progress of CSDMS in terms of science (including the development of working groups and partner memberships), management, outreach, and education; and will comment on and advise on revisions to the 5-year strategic plan. The Steering Committee will provide a report to the Executive Director at the close of its meeting, to which s/he will respond within two weeks.
