The Compound Inundation Team for Resilient Applications (CITRA) research group bridges the gap between academic research and practical application. Our team uses the latest technology to solve complex water resources problems covering inland and underground regions to coastal and estuarine locations. An essential component of any project is the dissemination of the results, thus CITRA engages the community and stakeholders by simplifying complex concepts into simple analogies.
CITRA tackles any hydrodynamic problems and designs practical solutions. Our current research is focus (but not limited) on the following topics:
Multi-flood hazard assessments
Hybrid infrastructure solutions
Smart water systems
Flood resilience and climate change
Water transport problems (contaminants, pollution)
CITRA Research Opportunities
The CITRA research group is always interested in collaborating with academic faculty and private practitioners. We welcome any interdisciplinary partnership aiming to solve water-related issues. If you are interested in collaborating on a research proposal, please contact us to arrange a meeting. You can see our project portfolio below.

Where we are?
CITRA is hosted at the School of Environmental, Civil, Agricultural, and Mechanical Engineering in the College of Engineering at UGA. CITRA shares two lab spaces with three other research groups from IRIS: COAST, COBIA, and Bledsoe research groups.
These labs are located in the new $64 million Interdisciplinary-STEM-II building with state-of-the-art research and laboratory space.
UGA’s campus is just a few steps away from downtown Athens, giving students easy access to Athens’s thriving culture. More than 65 specialty shops, 55 restaurants and cafes, and 40 taverns and music venues line the streets of downtown. Over the years, Athens has become a cultural hotspot, and a mecca for music and arts. Located in the rolling foothills of the northeast Georgia mountains, Athens is only an hour from Atlanta, the ninth-largest metropolitan area in the U.S. and home to the busiest airport in the world.
