Expertise

His research expertise is in hydroclimatology, agroclimatology, environmental modeling, and applied data science.

My current research program focuses on 1) improving hydro-climate and agro-climate modeling, monitoring, and forecasting across scales, 2) harnessing geospatial and temporal big data from emerging earth observations and predictions with artificial intelligence for planning and decision making, and 3) analyzing impacts of hydroclimate variability and change and associated hazards on agriculture, food and water security, and ecosystem and environmental health.

Research in the group focuses on addressing critical issues related to climate and society using holistic systems approaches.

Current work focuses on three primary topics:

1. improving hydroclimate and agroclimate modeling, monitoring, and forecasting across scales

2. harnessing geospatial and temporal big data from emerging earth observations and predictions with artificial intelligence to inform  decision making

3. analyzing impacts of hydroclimate variability and change and associated hazards on agriculture, food and water security, and ecosystem and environmental health
