Tony Buda

Dr. Anthony Buda is a Co-Director of the USDA Northeast Climate Hub whose interests and expertise center on the potential effects of climate change on watershed hydrology and water quality. Dr. Buda is also a Research Hydrologist with the USDA Agricultural Research Service (ARS) Pasture Systems and Watershed Management Research Unit in University Park, PA. His research at USDA-ARS examines the effects of agricultural management, hydroclimate, landscape properties, and soil features on nutrient and sediment losses in watershed runoff. Findings from his studies contribute to unit-led research on Sustaining Agroecosystems and Water Resources in the Northeastern US and address several national initiatives under USDA-ARS’s Long-Term Agroecosystem Research (LTAR) network. Dr. Buda holds a B.S. in Environmental Science from Susquehanna University (1998), an M.S. in Forest Resources and Watershed Stewardship from Penn State University (2000), and a Ph.D. in Forest Hydrology from Penn State University (2007). During the interim period between his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees, he worked as a watershed modeler with the Interstate Commission on the Potomac River Basin (ICPRB).
