Biography

Viviana Maggioni’s research interests lie at the intersection of hydrometeorology and remote sensing. Her research activities span from the local scale, by developing advanced environmental monitoring systems at the Mason campus, to the global scale, combining water resources engineering with hydrometeorology and remote sensing to evaluate conditions in remote regions, where ground truthing is impossible, but where environmental and health consequences can be devastating. Maggioni is also a Visiting Assistant Research Scientist at the Earth System Science Interdisciplinary Center at the University of Maryland and an Affiliated Research Professor at the International Water Resources Research Institute at Chungnam University, Republic of Korea. Since 2016 she has been serving as Associate Editor for the Journal of Hydrometeorology (American Meteorological Society), since 2014 as Chair of the IPWG (International Precipitation Working Group) Validation Group, and since 2015 as Mason Representative for CUAHSI (Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science).
