Michael Friedel, PhD
Dr. Friedel has performed rigorous research on systems development and advancing state-of-the-art in model predictions ranging from machine learning to data-mining and predictive uncertainty on a nation scale. The need by nations to perform predictions, especially for drought, water use, and climate fluctuations, is increasing and in many cases, there are no numerical models. He has developed large-scale solutions for agriculture, drought mitigation processes, flooding events, and climate change. Mike has served as a manager in federal science agencies, as a global consultant in mining, food, energy (solar, power, and oil), and water, as well as bio-remediation.
Mike also has extensive experience in the private, public, and university sectors in a variety of field including, but not limited to, earth-atmospheric interaction, ground-water recharge, as well as flood and debris flow hydrology, geophysical tomography, ground-water quality and recharge, and inverse modeling. He has been routinely sought by international firms in Azerbaijan, Brazil, Britain, Canada, China, El Salvador, Georgia, Israel, Jordan, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, and others to assist in problem solving.
