Our group aims to develop a rainfall-runoff model for humid tropics and to assess the impact of land-use and climate change on flooding in Sumatra, Indonesia.
I investigated soil properties and runoff characteristics in forest and oil palm land, by analyzing groundwater and soil moisture records, conducting soil experiments, and simulating the vertical infiltration.
My Master’s thesis aims to capture the dynamic signatures of soil moisture around the globe. By analyzing soil moisture data observed through clusters of sensors, the research addresses the question: how does the soil moisture respond to rainfall and climate variability under diverse land-uses? I hope to expand the methodology and findings to remotely-sensed soil moisture data by satellite in the future study.
Our group is analyzing the hydrological, landscape, and geomorphological effects on the flood response of urban rivers in arid San Diego. The work will assess the effectiveness and uncertainties of PIV technique in a longitudinal survey.
I am working on the setting and assessment of the field sites and flow analysis with particle velocity imagery.
I am doing internship at Center for Western Weather and Water Extremes at UC San Diego on a project to improve prediction of rapid snowmelt caused by Rain-on-Snow events in the Sierra Nevada and Cascade mountains.
I am working on reviewing literature and compiling hydro-climatic data on Oregon and Washington watersheds. The data will be useful to assess the impacts of snow data quality on the accuracy of rain-on-snow detection.
Our group is working on the identifying source of water in highly modified urban rivers in arid San Diego with isotope analysis EMMA.
I am assisting the data cleaning and literature review about uncertainty in EMMA procedure.
