Dr. Grunwald specializes in the assessment of soil and water quality, Geographic Information Systems (GIS), remote sensing, quantitative soil landscape analyses, geostatistics, and modeling of the soil-water interface across multiple spatial scales. She is a Assistant Professor in the Soil and Water Science Department at the University of Florida and holds affiliate faculty appointments in the Department of Agricultural and Biological Engineering and the School of Natural Resources and Environment at the University of Florida. Dr. Grunwald teaches courses on GIS and environmental soil-landscape modeling. Her major research interests are focused on: (i) watershed-based modeling of water flow and nutrient transport; (ii) environmetrics (quantitative assessment of environmental quality); and (iii) pedometrics (application of statistical and geostatistical methods for the purpose of analyzing soils distribution, variability, properties and behavior. Her expertise includes statistical, geostatistical predictive modeling, spatial stochastic simulations, and mechanistic (process-based) modeling of watershed processes. Recent projects were conducted in the Sandusky Watershed in Ohio, Santa Fe River Watershed in north-central Florida, the Okeechobee Basin and the Greater Everglades in south Florida. She is the current Vice Chair of the Commission 1.5 Pedometrics of the International Union of Soil Sciences and the Distance Education Coordinator of the Soil and Water Science Department with an interest in fostering international collaboration supported by distance education graduate programs. She is a member of several professional organizations including the International Association of Hydrological Sciences, International Union of Soil Sciences, Soil Science Society of America, and the American Society of Agricultural Engineers. She authored more than 57 peer-referred publications and edited a textbook on Environmental Soil-Landscape Modeling.
