Scott Hamshaw


Scott Hamshaw is a post doctoral associate with the Vermont EPSCoR program at University of Vermont. His research focuses on applying advanced computational methods to characterize sediment transport in river systems. He hopes to develop tools that help organizations better utilize and understand both existing environmental data and data from new technologies and sensors. These tools can be used to inform decision-making in watersheds and guide protection and management strategies. In addition to his research, Scott remains active in environmental community service through involvement in The Watershed Center, a non-profit conservation organization, and his international development work in Honduras initiated as an undergraduate. Prior to graduate studies, Scott completed a dual-degree bachelor program at University of Vermont and St. Michael's College, and subsequently worked for three years as a consulting civil engineer before returning to pursue M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in engineering at the University of Vermont. The latter was made possible via a NSF Graduate Fellowship. Scott is a licensed professional engineer in the State of Vermont.
