Matt Bartos will join the Department of Civil, Architectural and Environmental Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin as an assistant professor in our Environmental and Water Resources Engineering group in January 2021.

Matt Bartos obtained his Ph.D. in Civil Engineering at the University of Michigan. He holds a B.S.E. in Environmental Engineering and a B.A. in English Literature from Arizona State University. He also holds an M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Michigan.

Matt’s research focuses on building a new generation of smart stormwater systems. These systems use real-time sensing and control to deliver improved performance and mitigate water hazards. Major areas of interest include urban flood mitigation; sensing and control of urban water quality; digital twin models for water infrastructure; and coupled operation of interdependent water, power and transportation systems.

"It's a huge honor to join the faculty team at UT Austin. I can't think of a better place to start a research program focused on smart civil infrastructure. I'm looking forward to inspiring a new generation of engineers to build the cities of the future!" said Bartos.
