Jon Goodall is a Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Virginia (UVA) and Director of the UVA Engineering Link Lab. He is a water resources engineer working to advance the use of data and computational sciences to improve the understanding, forecasting, and management of water systems. Much of his current work focuses on adapting techniques from cyber-physical systems for real-time flood mitigation in coastal urban communities experiencing sea level rise impacts. Professor Goodall leads the Hydroinformatics Research Group housed in the Link Lab, co-directs the UVA Public Interest Technology University Network (PIT-UN), and is a member of UVA's Environmental Resilience Institute and Center for Transportation Studies. He is a registered Professional Engineer (PE), a Fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers, and an elected member of the Virginia Academy of Science, Engineering, and Medicine. He earned his Ph.D. and M.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin and his B.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of Virginia.
