Wendy Graham is a hydrologist. She is interested in water --- where it comes from, where it goes, and what happens to it along the way. Her basic focus is groundwater and the complex changes it can undergo as it picks up minerals or other chemicals and transports them through the soil, through Florida's complex limestone geology, and through surface water.

Graham is the Carl S. Swisher Eminent Scholar in Water Resources in the Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering and Director of the Water Institute at the University of Florida, Gainesville. Her research focuses on integrated hydrologic modeling; groundwater resources evaluation and remediation; evaluation of impacts of agricultural production on surface and groundwater quality; evaluation of impacts of climate variability and climate change on hydrologic systems; and stochastic modeling and data assimilation.

In her role as Director of the UF Water Institute she coordinates campus-wide interdisciplinary research, education and outreach programs designed to develop and share new knowledge, and to develop and encourage the implementation of new technology and policy solutions needed to ensure a sustainable water future.
