Dr. Arthur Lutz

Geographical Hydrology

Dr. A.F. (Arthur) Lutz is a physical geographer with a solid background in hydrology, hydrological modelling, GIS, remote sensing and cryospheric sciences. His expertises include hydrological modelling at scales ranging from large river basins to small catchments, climate change impacts for future water resources, simulation models, data analysis, hydro-meteorological monitoring in the field, and training. Particular focus of his work is on the modelling of climate change impacts for water resources. He is mainly educated at Utrecht University, where he completed his Bachelor, Master, and PhD degree in physical geography and hydrology. He has nine years of experience in research and consultancy related to water resources and climate change. He has international working experience in multiple developing countries in Asia, Latin America and Africa. 

He obtained his PhD degree at Utrecht University in 2016 for his thesis titled “Impact of climate change on the hydrology of High Mountain Asia”. Since 2019 he is postdoctoral researcher at Utrecht University in the Mountain Hydrology Group where he coordinates the SustaIndus project (Targeting a climate change hotspot: science to support the SDGs and sustainable water management in the transboundary Indus river basin). Between 2011 and 2021 he was involved in the research and consultancy firm FutureWater Wageningen, where he led multiple projects as Senior Hydrologist and Climate Change Expert.
