"Combining engineering and policy is essential in supporting decision-making for sustainable systems."
Ashlynn Stillwell earned her B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Missouri (2006), and her M.S. in Environmental and Water Resources Engineering (2010), M.P.Aff. in Public Affairs (2010), and Ph.D. in Civil Engineering (2013) from The University of Texas at Austin. Her honors include the American Water Works Association 2011 Academic Achievement Award for 2nd Place Master's Thesis and the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship.
Dr. Stillwell teaches CEE 498 Water Technology and Policy and CEE 350 Water Resources Engineering.
Dr. Stillwell has research interests in the nexus of energy and water systems and the relationship these engineering systems have with public policy. Her primary research areas include developing decision support tools regarding water use in thermoelectric power plants, modeling the impacts of water and energy management decisions on resource systems, and assessing the economic value of waste streams.
