We are a group of scientists and engineers aiming to improve our understanding, observation, and prediction of hydroclimate processes, extreme events (e.g., drought, heat wave, and extreme precipitation), and their impact risks. It requires a fundamental understanding of the complex processes in hydroclimate systems, improving their modeling and predictions at relevant scales and lead times, and quantifying their roles in natural and managed systems.

Research focuses on understanding and predicting the key components, processes, and interactions of climate, water, and biosystems using novel earth predictions and observations, data analytics and artificial intelligence methods, and process-based simulations.
