Nicoleta Cristea

Postdoctoral Research Associate

Nicoleta moved from Romania to Seattle in 2001. She holds an undergraduate degree in Hydropower and Environmental Engineering from the University Politechnica of Bucharest and a M.S. in Civil & Environmental Engineering from the University of Washington. After working for the Washington State Department of Ecology on stream temperature studies, Nicoleta returned to the University of Washington where she got her PhD. Her graduate research involved applying distributed hydrologic models to evaluate hydrologic effects of climate change in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and methods to estimate evapotranspiration over the continental US. Current project combines hydrologic modeling with remotely sensed distributed snow depth and land surface temperature data to provide diagnostic in model ability to represent distributed snow processes in the Tuolumne River Watershed in Yosemite National Park, California.

She enjoys traveling, skiing, chocolate, and mostly, good meals and good laughs around the table.
