My research interests are focused on the intersections between hydrology, satellite remote sensing, and climate change. I work on scales ranging from the entire globe to a single large wetland, with a special interest in Arctic and Subarctic regions. Current research projects aim to address three questions:

How can satellite remote sensing be used to understand the storage and movement of surface water?
How accurately can regional climate models simulate hydrologic processes?
How is anthropogenic warming impacting Arctic hydrologic and climatic systems?
