Research


Climate change and human activities are two major interactive factors in Hydrological Processes. Identifying and mitigating the hydrological impacts of these two factors constitute the fundamentals of my research portfolio. This flow chart shows the framework of my current and future research structure. For detailed information please click the two cartoon figures below the chart.


About Me


I received my PhD degree from the State University of New York, College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF) Water Resources Engineering program in 2012. After spending three years as a postdoc in Land Surface Hydrology Group in University of Washington, I joined the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) studying multiscale hydrologic modeling. In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, biking, and traveling. I am also a passionate landscape photographer who takes great joy from capturing the beauty of the mother nature.
