Danny Che joined the Ohio University Department of Civil Engineering in 2016. He teaches courses in water resources engineering and fluid mechanics. Che’s research primarily focuses on using computational optimization models to determine optimal designs of hydraulic structures and operation of water resource infrastructures. Before joining Ohio University, Che worked as a water resources engineer at Atkins North America, Inc., where he specialized in writing python codes for automating high-resolution hydrologic and hydraulics (H&H) model development and simulations. Che has worked on projects for Mohave County, Lake Havasu City, Maricopa County, and Riverside County; the findings of these projects were presented to state and federal agencies in order to determine new flood hazard areas and develop emergency plans in those regions.
