Research Interests

My research focuses on finding practical solutions to water, food, and energy security under climate change and on a regional or global scale. Using novel approaches in data science, AI, stochastic analysis of big data, applied remote sensing, programming, and tools such as Google Earth Engine and Planet, I look at the availability of water and its movement on Earth to inform stakeholders, farmers, and policymakers. Additionally, I focus on adaptation strategies and nature-based solutions for PEI, such as sustainable infrastructure design, toward achieving net zero.
