Professor of Civil & Environmental Engineering and Earth System Science, University of California, Irvine

Our group aims to bridge between the disciplines of hydrology, climatology, and remote sensing to address critical global water resource issues. We are particularly interested in combining remote sensing techniques and physically-based and statistical approaches in order to develop more reliable models of large-scale hydrologic systems. Our long-term research objective is to utilize continuously growing satellite data, model simulations along with ground-based observations to understand changes in the past and future hydrologic and climatic extremes including compound and cascading hazards.
