Francisco Munoz-Arriola’s research and extension activities focus on helping agricultural decision-makers more easily upload, transform, store and analyze water, agricultural, fuel consumption and weather/climate data to improve decision-making and our ability to predict the effects of extreme weather events on the sustainability of human activities and ecosystems.

Munoz-Arriola uses climate and hydrologic models and information technologies to study the interconnected processes of the water-food-energy nexus in a changing climate, as well as their impacts on agro-ecosystems and ecosystems sustainability.

He holds a doctorate in civil and environmental engineering from Duke University and completed two postdoctoral appointments at University of Washington and University of California, San Diego. He has a master’s degree in coastal oceanography and bachelor’s degree in oceanography from the Universidad Autónoma de Baja California.
