Overview

About the Author:
Dr. Sergio E. Serrano has over 15 years of experience teaching as a professor of engineering at the University of Waterloo (Canada) and the University of Kentucky (U.S.A.). He received his Ph.D. degree from the University of Waterloo. He has over 25 years of international experience in consulting and professional engineering practice. He is the author of over 60 publications in scientific journals and books; an editor of the American Society of Civil Engineers Journal of Hydrologic Engineering. Dr. Serrano's main field of research is in stochastic and statistical methods as applied to water resources, environmental engineering, and continuum mechanics in general. He is a pioneer in the development of new analytical solutions of non-linear stochastic differential equations in complex systems subject to hysteresis, transient variability, random media heterogeneity, and scale dependency.
