University of Michigan
Arthur F. Thurnau Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering
Steven J. Wright received a MSE in Hydraulic Engineering from Washington State University in 1973 and a PhD in Civil Engineering from Caltech in 1977. He was a faculty member in the Civil and Environmental Engineering Department at the University of Michigan until his retirement in 2018. Early research interests involved mixing in stratified systems and hydraulic controls on mixing in stratified exchange flows. Later these interests were focused on transient two phase flow phenomena in rapidly filling storm and combined sewer systems.
