Main Focus

My primary research interests are in the interactions of climate, water, and ecosystems under changing climate and human impacts. I focus particularly on the integration of data and domain knowledge with hybrid and explainable machine learning methods to address scientific challenges in these areas of interest.

Specific research interests:

  • Terrestrial ecohydrological processes and interactions at different scales
  • Integration of physics and data with hybrid and explainable AI
  • Coupling and feedback mechanisms between water, energy, and carbon cycles
  • Predictability, attribution, and impacts of climate extremes
  • Hydroclimatology, climate change impacts, and human influences
