Dr. Kaveh Madani, known internationally for the successful integration of game theory into traditional water resource management, received The Walter L. Huber Civil Engineering Research Prize .

The Walter L. Huber Civil Engineering Research Prize (also known as the Huber Award) is considered to be the highest level mid-career research prize in civil engineering and is awarded for outstanding achievements and contributions in research with respect to all disciplines of civil engineering, Imperial College London reports.

Dr. Madani received this prize “for groundbreaking research in developing methods for the allocation of scarce water resources merging conflict-resolution and game-theoretic concepts for application to complex water resources systems.” The award selection committee of ASCE particularly noted his “outstanding leadership in the application of systems analysis to environmental, water and energy resource problems.”

His core research interests and experiences include integrated water, environmental, and energy resources engineering and management. His work includes application of systems engineering, conflict resolution, system dynamics, economics, optimization as well as simulation and modelling methods to water, environmental, and energy resource problems at different scales to derive policy and management insights.

Dr. Madani joined Imperial in 2013, after a successful career as an assistant professor at the University of Central Florida (UCF). Back in 2012, he received another recognition from ASCE as a New Face of Civil Engineering for notable achievements in civil engineering before the age of 30.
