Jasper A. Vrugt (born 1976) is a Dutch scientist/engineer/applied mathematician known for his work in the earth sciences: surface hydrology, soil physics, hydrogeophysics, hydrometeorology, and geophysics. Vrugt is an assistant professor at the University of California, Irvine and holds a joint appointment in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering[1] and the Department of Earth System Science.[2] He also holds a part-time appointment as associate professor at the University of Amsterdam, Faculty of Science (CGE).[3]

Life and career[edit]

Vrugt has received several awards. He received the 2011 Donath Medal (Young Scientist Award) of the Geological Society of America (GSA).[4] As recipient of this medal, Dr. Vrugt was made GSA Fellow in 2012. In 2010, he received the James B. Macelwane Medal of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) for outstanding contributions in surface hydrology, soil physics, and hydrometeorology, and was simultaneously elected AGU Fellow.[5] In the same year, he was also recognized with the Outstanding Young Scientist Award from the European Geosciences Union (EGU),.[6] Vrugt is the first scientist to receive all three honors: the Donath Medal (GSA), James B, Macelwane Medal (AGU) and the Outstanding Young Scientist Award (EGU).[citation needed]

He is Associate Editor of Water Resources Research.
