I am a broadly trained physical geographer with an Interdisciplinary perspective. My research fields are hydro-climatology, water resources, and global climate change. I am interested in investigating the impacts of climate change on water availability from local to continental scale, using modeling and multi-source observations. I am also interested in hydro-climatic extremes such as droughts and flooding. My PhD dissertation focuses on the dominant drivers of hydrological change and prediction of streamflow in the contiguous United States. I am currently working with Dr. Justin Mankin on a project about vegetation and drought.
