I am a computational hydrologist, engineer, and scientist working on solutions for water resources and climate. My research aims to aid actionable decision-making by improving hydrological information for monitoring and forecasting hydrological extremes and their impacts. To this end, I develop scalable computational approaches for high-resolution hydrological prediction by leveraging satellite remote sensing, land surface modeling, machine learning, data fusion, and high-performance computing.

I obtained a Ph.D. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Princeton University, working with Prof. Eric Wood and Justin Sheffield. Currently, I am a postdoctoral research associate in the Atmospheric and Ocean Science Program at Princeton University and working with Dr. Elena Shevliakova on Earth System Modeling and satellite data assimilation. Prior, I worked on water resources and environmental engineering consulting.
