consider myself a living, breathing, intelligent problem solver.
I enjoy working with teaching as well as research because that satisfy
my urge to explore physical sciences. I would like to translate the
knowledge I gain through research to tangible benefits.
in physical and statistical hydrological modeling and their relations
with climate and land cover is of high interest to me. I am
interested also in integrating and synthesizing water related sciences
and engineering research activities to meet the growing demands for
integrated professional data analyses. Studying human and natural
systems interaction with their associated impacts on water production
and the biodiversity of freshwater ecosystems meet my professional
