Dr. Ana P. Barros is the Donald Biggar Willett Chair of Engineering and Department Head of Civil and Environmental Engi¬neering in The Grainger College of Engineering at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Her primary research interests are in hydrology, hydrometeorology and environmen¬tal physics, with a focus on water-cycle processes in regions of complex terrain, remote sensing of the environ¬ment, and predictability and risk assessment of extreme events. Professor Barros has served in multiple national committees over the years, including the Space Studies Board of the National Research Council, Water Science and Technology Board, Board of Atmospheric Sciences and Climate, and the US National Committee for the International Hydrology Program (IHP) of UNESCO. She was a Senior Fellow at the Energy and Climate Part¬nership of the Americas (ECPA) 2011–2015, and a founding member of the ASCE committee on Climate Change and Adaptation. Currently, Dr. Barros is the Past-Chair of Atmospheric and Hydrospheric Sciences at AAAS, and President-Elect of the Hydrology Section of AGU. She was the Chief Editor of the Journal of Hydrometeorology for five years, and a member of the Editorial Board of AGU Advances.
