Dr. Maneta's research focuses on water and energy flows in the landscape at the watershed and regional scales. Specifically, he is interested in how vegetation and agriculture drive the apportionment of available water and energy and are thus a primary control on hydrologic processes. After finishing his Ph.D. (University of Extremadura, Spain) on integrated physics-based hydrologic modeling for semiarid regions, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher at UC Davis on the interactions between hydrology and agriculture. Currently, he is an Associate Professor of hydrology in the Geosciences Dept at the University of Montana.
