  • Programming for the web

Long-term research goal 
Move environmental modeling domain from the prescriptive situation (depicted on the left in the following figure), typical for most environmental studies, to the collaborative situation (depicted on the right) that builds capacity within stakeholder communities to handle pressing long-term issues such as climate change.
Stakeholder's direct access

Research Areas
Environmental informatics, watershed management, stormwater management, water resources (quality and quantity) modeling, environmental monitoring, regional climate change impact, GIS application in water research,  machine learning, and human & social dynamics.
