I am interested in studying the impact of climate change on water resources, parameterization of land surface characteristics in hydrology through hydrology-land surface-atmosphere interactions, soil water dynamics, and experimentation/instrumentation. My research also focuses on water resources management using remote sensing, GIS, and climate forecasts.
