Research is motivated by emerging issues related to climate. I use earth system observations and predictions, satellite remote sensing, statistics/machine learning, and numerical modeling to study climatological and hydrological processes, agricultural and natural systems, and planning and management. Current work focuses on three primary topics: 1) Exploiting earth system big data to improve environmental or agricultural management decision making; 2) Improving environmental modeling, monitoring, and forecasting at relevant scales; 3) Analyzing impacts of climate variability and change and associated hazards on natural and human systems.
