I am a Ph.D. student in Hydrology at the Joint Program at San Diego State University & University of California, Santa Barbara.
I am interested in soil moisture,
measured both from in-situ sensors and remotely sensed from satellite platforms.
The research questions I am tackling are
- How does soil moisture controls hydrological and land-atmosphere processes at multiple spatio-temporal scales?
- How to represent the processes in modeling?
- How to leverage the research outcomes for flood and drought management under climate and land-use changes?
