Krajewski, who was elected for his advances in flood prediction and flood risk reduction, also is a faculty research engineer at the UI’s IIHR—Hydroscience & Engineering, a world-renowned center with more than 100 years of experience in educationresearch, and public service focusing on hydraulic engineering and fluid mechanics. Krajewski’s research expertise and vision have transformed Iowa into a more flood-resilient state that is serving as model for others, including Texas, Missouri, Nebraska, Louisiana, and North Carolina.

“Election to NAE is a well-deserved recognition of Witold’s groundbreaking flood research and dedicated outreach to communities across Iowa,” says Harriet Nembhard, dean of the UI College of Engineering. “Because flooding is a nationwide issue, Witold’s work and the work of the Iowa Flood Center is sought after by governments and agencies from across the country who know that this expertise can benefit their communities and protect their local economies.”
