About Me

Hi, I am Enes Yildirim, graduate research assistant at the University of Iowa. I am currently pursuing a Ph.D in Water Resources. I obtained my Bachelor's Degree in Civil Engineering from Cumhuriyet University, Turkey. In August 2017, I earned my master's degree in Hydraulics and Water Resources at the University of Iowa under the supervision of Professor Ibrahim Demir.My research focuses on Hydroinformatics and Geosciences topics, specically developing flood disaster informations systems, spatial data visualization, spatial databases and GIS.

Farmers are understandably fascinated by soil moisture—after all, nothing grows without water.


This summer, students and researchers at the Iowa Flood Center based at the University of Iowa are partnering with NASA on a research project that could help the scientific community better understand and monitor soil moisture.


The IFC is part of a team comparing data collected by the Soil Moisture Active Passive (SMAP) satellite to information gathered on the ground near Ames in the South Fork watershed, a tributary of the Iowa River. [Read more from IowaNow]
