Jesse Rowles MS

Ecohydrologist I

Jesse’s engineering path is unique compared to most in the water resources field. He originally obtained his BS from Lehigh University, Pennsylvania in Astrophysics, with a minor in Applied Mathematics and Earth and Environmental Sciences. For 5 years he worked as a Systems Engineer in the defense industry before following his inherent passion for water-focused environmental challenges. Jesse went on to earn his MS from Utah State University in Civil/Environmental Engineering as part of their River Mechanics and Modeling program. His graduate research involved two major areas of focus concerning water availability in the North Coast of California: ecohydraulic habitat modeling in surveyed and simulated river terrain, and water allocation modeling in an unregulated watershed. At cbec, Jesse combines his experience with Python, R, and MATLAB coding, with his modeling knowledge to create sustainable solutions for the water resources industry.
