Dr. James Guo, is one of WRP's highly regarded and respected authors. Currently, he is professor and director for Hydrologic Engineering Program in the Department of Civil Engineering, University of Colorado at Denver. He graduated from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana with a PhD in Water Resources in 1982. Since then, he has been associated with the University of Colorado at Denver as a teaching/research faculty. Dr. Guo is also active in engineering practices. He is a registered professional engineer in the State of Colorado.
Dr. Guo has successfully applied the hydrologic system concept to the development of many useful urban storm water design methodologies. He also incorporated these algorithms into stormwater modeling and published a stormwater computer software library. These computer models, including Street and Inlet Hydraulics, Storm Drain and Sanitary Sewer, Detention and Retention Facilities, and Drainage Channel Design, are supported and accepted by many public agencies as design and analysis tools. He is the author of numerous technical articles, training notes, conference proceedings, and is in demand as a speaker at technical meetings and training seminars in the area of stormwater management.
Many of Dr. Guo's research projects have been converted into storm water design criteria and accepted by Denver, CO, Las Vegas, NV, and Sacramento, CA metropolitan areas. Dr. Guo has been recognized by five International Who is Who, received Teaching, Research, and Service Awards presented by the University of Colorado at Denver, 1996 Achievement Award presented by the Colorado State Engineering Council, and 2006 Best Hydrologic Technical Paper Award presented by the American Society of Civil Engineers.
