Research Interests

My research interest lies in understanding the complex feedback between hydrosphere, geosphere, atmosphere, biosphere, and anthroposphere. In particular, I focus on investigating the control of climate and anthropogenic activities on the fate and dynamics of nutrients and contaminants. My research makes use of computational techniques to identify regions susceptible to climate and environmental change at regional, continental, and global scales.
