Contribution Statement

I 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.


Research Interests

Working in physical and statistical hydrological modeling and their relations with climate and land cover is of highly interest to me.  I am interested also in integrating and synthesizing water related science and engineering research activities to meet the growing demands for integrated expertise on water planning. Studying human and natural systems interactions with their associated impacts on water production and the biodiversity of freshwater ecosystems meets my professional goals.
