 Hoshin Gupta, was among three scholars at the university inducted Jan. 11 as University of Arizona Regents’ Professors, the state’s highest faculty honor.

Regents' Professors are expected to exemplify the highest objectives and standards of the university through their scholarship, research or creative activities and teaching. Approved by the Arizona Board of Regents, only 3 percent of faculty members can be Regents' Professors.

Gupta is a hydrologist, systems theorist and philosopher with strong technical skills in complex algorithm development. His ideas, methods and vision have set the standard in his field for 30 years and enhanced the ability to use models for learning and prediction in hydrology, the university said.

Gupta has an international reputation as an exceptional scientist, charismatic teacher and influential world leader in watershed hydrology, achieved through groundbreaking research done via rainfall-runoff studies, it said.

He was elected a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union in 2009, awarded the European Geophysical Union's 2014 Dalton Medal and honored by the American Meteorological Society with the 2017 RE Horton Lecture Award. In 2013, he was elected Tucson Electric Power Fellow of the Galileo Circle of the UA.

Gupta has published 10 books and more than 170 peer-reviewed papers, and his work is among the most cited in the field of hydrology, the university said in a news release. One of his papers has been cited more than 1,500 times, and total citations for all of this work exceed 27,000 in Google Scholar, it said.

Additionally, Gupta has been working on improving the integration of hydrologic science into decision-making and policy. In 2006, he was named the Salt River Project Professor of Technology, Public Policy & Markets for his work on evaluating hydrological impact of potential climate change.

Recently, he was a principal investigator of the first European Union-funded project to strengthen ties between European- and U.S.-based researchers in the social and natural sciences related to water, the university said.

Gupta is a professor of systems analysis in the Department of Hydrology & Atmospheric Sciences. He has been selected by students as the winner of the department's annual award for teaching excellence on five separate occasions.

Additionally, he was recognized by the UA with the 2014-2015 Graduate College Graduate and Professional Education Teaching and Mentoring Award.

"Being a member of the UA community for almost 34 years has been a rewarding and enriching experience," Gupta said in a statement. "To be recognized and valued in this way is very gratifying, not to mention extremely motivating."
