Susanna Eden recently retired from the Water Resources Research Center after more than 30 years working in water resources in Arizona, Minnesota, and Washington DC.

She received her PhD from the University of Arizona Department of Hydrology and Water Resources (now Hydrology and Atmospheric Sciences).
Growing up in Los Angeles during periods of drought throughout California, Brian McGreal developed a keen interest in water use and its effects on the environment and local economies. He worked at the WRRC as an intern last summer and produced the first draft of the 2021 Arroyo: Arizona Groundwater Management - Past, Present and Future. Having received his BS in Environmental and Water Resource Economics, McGreal is now working towards an MS in UArizona’s Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics. He plans to pursue a PhD in applied economics.
