Research Interests: 

My research is focused on hydro-climatology and large scale hydrological modeling. I am interested in assessing future trends of hydrological extremes (i.e. floods and droughts) using climate model projections and quantifying associated uncertainties. My other research interests include, but are not limited to seeking a better understanding of land, water, atmosphere interactions and how local to regional water budgets are being impacted under a changing climate.
