Nathan Miller and Elizabeth Mora with Matrix New World Engineering
Matrix New World Engineering is a company of engineering and science experts who focus on some of the nation’s most pressing long-term challenges, including climate change, resiliency, ecological restoration, contamination studies, water supply, disaster response, and urban revitalization. Matrix believes solving environmental challenges through careful planning and engineering is an indispensable measure of success.
Matrix is a growing woman-owned business with offices in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Arizona, and Louisiana coupled with project experience throughout the United States and the Caribbean.
Nathan Miller is a graduate of the University of Arizona and serves as Arizona Operations Manager for Matrix New World Engineering. He is also a hydrologist with recognized expertise in numerical groundwater flow modeling who leads Matrix’s modeling team.
Mr. Miller combines his technical proficiency with an understanding of the State’s key regulatory policies affecting the use of groundwater to serve municipalities, water utilities, developers, and regulatory agencies.
Mr. Miller serves as technical lead and primary interface for several high-profile groundwater resources investigations throughout Arizona. This includes but is not limited to:
- construction of a basin-wide model for the Harquahala Basin to quantify the recoverable volume of groundwater, an important alternative water supply in the State;
- development of a proposed new baseline model simulation for the Pinal Active Management Area (AMA) resolving key deficiencies for meeting the requirements of the Assured Water Supply (AWS) program; and,
- adaptation of models to evaluate the impacts of potential future increases of groundwater pumping to help rural communities identify effective groundwater management solutions.
Elizabeth Mora is a Senior Project Hydrogeologist and Modeler with 21 years of professional experience.
Throughout her career, Ms. Mora has developed expertise in groundwater flow modeling for water resources projects including managed aquifer recharge and Assured Water Supply projects.
Ms. Mora works closely with Mr. Miller in the use of numerical groundwater flow models to evaluate pumping and recharge impacts for clients throughout Arizona.
As a fourth generation native to the Phoenix area, Ms. Mora has a genuine interest in the future of Arizona’s water supply and is committed to safeguarding its long-term viability.
At Matrix, Ms. Mora assists with management of the Matrix Modeling Team. She has conducted dozens of water supply and managed aquifer recharge projects across Arizona.
