Omar Wani works in the field of environmental science and engineering - where the overarching goal is "the application of scientific and engineering principles to improve and maintain the environment." Specifically, his research work entails advanced statistical and computational modeling of various water and water-infrastructure systems, in both built and natural environments. One of the main goals of his research is to enable and encourage risk-based decision-making under uncertainty. He likes to work at the intersection of science and application. Apart from research, he enjoys stimulating conversations, reading poetry, running along streams, hiking up to glaciers, and traveling in general.
