My research focuses on uncertainty quantification and data assimilation for hydrologic predictions. I develop computational methodologies and tools for explicitly quantifying uncertainties and their temporal and spatial interactions in hydrologic predictions, advancing our understanding of nonlinear dynamics and chaos in complex hydrologic systems. My research also involves the hydrologic data assimilation by using filtering techniques that include the particle and ensemble Kalman filters. These state-of-the-art techniques are useful for improving the accuracy and reliability of hydrologic predictions.

In addition, I use regional climate modelling systems together with geostatistical techniques to perform spatial analysis of high-resolution climate change information, enhancing regional climate change impacts studies. I am interested in exploring the impacts of climate change on hydrologic extremes and their potential management solutions at a wide range of spatial and temporal scales.
