Research Interests

  • Land-atmosphere interactions: Land‐atmosphere interactions and their impacts on hydro-climatic extremes.
  • Hydrologic modeling: Machine learning-based hydrologic modeling, hydrologic modeling at ungauged locations.
  • Satellite observational data: Uncertainty quantification (ground validation, hydrologic evaluation).
