Research Interests

  • Coupling of water and carbon cycles
  • Hydroclimatology and hydrological extreme assessments
  • Application of geo-Statistical methods and optimization algorithms
  • Application of GIS and Remote Sensing technology in environmental analysis


I am pursuing my PhD as a part of MOMENT project. Our project aims at improving representation of integrated water and carbon cycle across different ecosystems with its emphasis on extreme events. The study sites are part of TERENO observatory network with dataset available from 2015. As a first step, an optimal dynamic vegetation model, in terms of a smart model, will be parameterized with Multiscale Parameter Regionalization (MPR) technique.  The selected model then will be coupled into in-house developed Hydrological Model (mHM) for a precise prediction of the coupled terrestrial water and carbon cycles.
