I am a multi-disciplinary hydroclimatologist whose research aims to understand the causes and consequences of hydrological extremes such as drought and extreme precipitation. While much of my research focuses on climatology in its own right, much of my research also aims to improve understanding of how hydrological extremes affect life on earth. Questions that I find especially interesting involve the effects of human-caused climate change on the hydrological cycle, and how these changes affect ecological systems and humanity through extreme events such as heat waves, wildfires, and flooding. My ultimate goal is to advance scientific knowledge in ways that are relevant to policy makers and future scientific endeavors, and also interesting to the public and other scientists.
