Ryan Winston's research is focused on runoff hydrology and water quality, and performance of stormwater control measures, often with focus in urban environments.  Prior to taking a tenure-track faculty position at Ohio State in 2018, Ryan was a Research Assistant Professor and Research Scientist in FABE.  He spent nearly a decade studying and working at North Carolina State University under Bill Hunt working on many projects focused on innovative stormwater management.  His current broad and applied research program spans runoff hydrology, water quality, stream and drainage management, stormwater control measure performance, modeling of urban runoff and water quality, field-scale monitoring at small and large scales, and quantifying ecosystem services.  Broadly, he is interested in economical solutions to environmental problems.
