Dr. Emily Zechman Berglund* joined the North Carolina State University Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering in July 2011. She graduated with her B.S. and M.S. in Civil Engineering at the University of Kentucky. She is a proud graduate of North Carolina State University, where she earned her Ph.D. in 2005.
Dr. Berglund teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in water resources engineering, hydrology, and systems analysis for civil engineering. She received Best Research-Oriented Paper Awards in 2010 and 2011 for her publications in the ASCE Journal of Water Resources Planning and Management.

Dr. Berglund's research interests are in the development of new computational methodologies to explore the influence of feedbacks among social and infrastructure systems. Her research creates new socio-technical models by integrating Complex Adaptive Systems modeling approaches with engineering models to simulate feedback mechanisms and adaptive behaviors among consumers, infrastructure, and environmental systems. New Evolutionary Algorithm-based approaches are coupled with socio-technical models to identify optimal adaptive strategies for managing sustainability, security, and resilience of complex infrastructure and water resources systems. Specifically, she is exploring the sustainability of urban water supply and protection of human health in water contamination incidents. Dr. Berglund specializes in water management; water reclamation and conservation; water security; complex adaptive systems; agent-based modeling; evolutionary computation; human behavior; and social dimensions.
