    Dr. Jason Davison is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Civil Engineering at The Catholic University of America. Previously, he was a Post-Doctoral Scientist at Aquanty Inc., where he researched Canada's water resources and the impact of global climate change. Jason received his PhD in Earth and Environmental Sciences from the University of Waterloo in 2017, and his research focused on integrated atmosphere, surface, and subsurface water flow models. He received his M.S. in Environmental Fluid Mechanics and Hydrology from Stanford University and his B.S. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology. Jason’s research interests include water cycle modeling, environmental policy, continental scale hydrology, and climate change.
