Watershed Management and Ecohydrology


My primary focus lies in unraveling the complex dynamics of surface water across diverse environmental settings. I am particularly interested in exploring how climate change, shifts in land use patterns, and human activities intricately influence the distribution and availability of water resources. My research aims to develop innovative modeling approaches and data-driven techniques and integrate field observations and remote sensing data to enhance our understanding of hydrological processes.
