Research Overview:

I am a catchment hydrologist with research interests along two broad themes: (1) to understand how climate and land-use change will affect the hydrological behaviour of landscapes across multiple observation scales, and (2) to quantify the resilience of linked ecosystem services to hydrological changes in the region. I am especially interested in investigating the spatial and temporal patterns of environmental change through model-based evaluations across numerous river basins.

 

Current Research Group:
