Florian Kluibenschädl is a senior environmental engineer applications developer at RTI International. He is an expert in the analysis, breakdown, and mapping of complex systems in various environmental and engineering field recourses, including water, energy, and soil. He has practical experience with most aspects of state-of-the-art software development life cycle types. These include Waterfall, Agile, and various DevOps tools. Mr. Kluibenschädl also has an in-depth knowledge of various hydraulic and hydrologic software tools, allowing him to quickly learn their interface and workflow design. 

Currently, Mr. Kluibenschädl works on the Amanzi™ RTI International Strategic Investment Funds. Amanzi™ is RTI’s software system architecture and technology stack for the flexible and scalable deployment of a range of environmental data processing and modeling systems. The Amanzi™ Forecast System is an implementation of this architecture, focusing on the forecasting element of the hydraulic and hydrological decision support system. As a software engineer, Mr. Kluibenschädl is involved in the design and implementation of key components such as a data exchange format, data storage, workflow orchestration, and model services (e.g., U.S. Army Corps of Engineers HEC-HMS and RAS micro services).

Mr. Kluibenschädl also supports the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services Real-Time Data & Information for Watersheds project. It is a near-real-time acquisition of eight data products. This project aims to integrate the proprietary hydrology and routing model, and automatically produce and publish 12 warm-start forecasts per day, including one extended lookback run. The system further incorporates a stochastic dual dynamic programming model for reservoir operation optimization. 

Mr. Kluibenschädl joined RTI in 2019. Prior, he worked as a software developer where he supported a state government’s IT department. He developed a widely used geographic information system (GIS) integration standard for web-based governmental applications. 

Additionally, Mr. Kluibenschädl has several years of practical experience as a civil engineer for water supply systems in the Austrian Alps and U.S. He has international research experience where he cooperated with the International Center for Agriculture Research in the Dry Areas (ICARDA). He also executed field studies in Ethiopia’s Amhara region. 

Mr. Kluibenschädl is knowledgeable in several programming languages, including Python, Java, C++, R, VBA, and SQL. He is also an expert in database schema design and management, system architecture with UML, GIS and geo-informatics software (ArcGIS & QGIS).
