Anita Milman

William C. Landreth Visiting Fellow, Aug 2019-Dec 2019

Anita Milman is an associate professor in the Department of Environmental Conservation at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. Her research focuses on the multi-level governance of water resources. In her research, she seeks to understand how technical, institutional and social dimensions of water are accounted for and interact within governance processes. Recent projects examine the production and use of science in transboundary rivers, institutions for managed aquifer recharge and multi-level responses to flood events. During her time at Water in the West, Milman will be working with  Tara Moran on an NSF-funded project studying inter-agency coordination under California's Sustainable Groundwater Management Act. Milman earned a Ph.D. from the Energy and Resources Group at the University of California, Berkeley and a M.Eng from the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Cornell University. Prior to joining the University of Massachusetts, Milman was a senior research associate with the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research and School of International Development at the University of East Anglia, in Norwich, Norfolk, United Kingdom. Milman serves on the editorial board of the journal Environmental Research Letters and is a member of the NAS Study Board for the NYC Watershed.
