Dr. Kibler’s research focus is in ecohydraulics – at the crossroads of engineering and aquatic ecology. She studies physical-biological interactions in river and estuarine systems, in both natural waterways and those modified by dams, dredging, levies and hardened structures. Her research seeks water development pathways that minimize ecosystem damages and promote preservation or restoration of aquatic ecosystem services.
