INTERESTS

Ever wondered what happens in the atmosphere during an extreme flood? Or how flood magnitude might change under a changing climate? How do we manage our water resources given changes in water demand and climate? These are the types of questions I like to answer, using national or even global data sets, and employing a variety of statistical and process-based modeling techniques.
