Dr. Damico studies the ways in which humans have utilized, thought about, and shaped waterways. Her dissertation studied water conflict in the nineteenth-century U.S.-Mexico borderlands, focusing on continuity and change following the U.S. conquest of New Mexico. Her recent research, presented at conferences and in the process of being written up for publication, expands this inquiry to study the relationship between the city of Albuququerque and the Rio Grande. Since coming to Saint Francis in 2009, Dr. Damico has also expanded her research to include local issues, such as the famous Johnstown flood of 1889 and its ramifications. Dr. Damico involves her students in this local research and, in that capacity, is one of the associate directors of the Center for Watershed Research and Service. Her publications include "The Cebolleta Land Grant: Multicultural Contention and Cooperation." Natural Resources Journal, Fall 2008; and a review of David DeJong, Stealing the Gila (2009).
